Legs on the Wall

Sunday, October 13th, 2002

In 2002 David and Jacob were employed by Legs on the Wall to be a part of the celebrations for the opening of The Esplanade in Singapore. Under the direction of Brendan Shelper they performed in a short choreographed physical theatre piece (with French Canadian company Théâtre de la Dame de Coeur providing puppetry and video projection) as well as in the spectacular finale on the side of the Maybank building – a 500ft skyscraper.

That’s David on the right in the first image – and a slightly closer view in the second image. Jacob was at the other end of the rope, belaying David during the performance which required three full runs down the side of the building.
