Inspired by Muhammad Ali, from champion boxer to Parkinson’s sufferer. Weaving hypnotic music and dance together to create a unique theatrical experience taking us to the heart of the pugilist. ‘The passion, the desperation, the drive, the joy, the weariness, the pain, an exploration of what it means to be a boxer unencumbered by the usual clichéd storylines’ (Total Theatre).
