STAGE TUBE: First Look at Fuel Theatre's THE ROOF
THE ROOF, the brand new 3620 degree performance, directed by David Rosenberg (co-founder of Shunt) and Frauke Requardt, their third collaboration following Electric Hotel (also a Fuel production) and Motor Show, will run at the Doon Street Car Park 30 May - 28 June 2014. Preview performances (30 May - 8 June) are Monday-Saturday at 9:30pm.

In a purpose-built venue from the set designer of the 2012 Summer Paralympics opening ceremony Jon Bausor, audiences for THE ROOF, standing throughout, will experience the breathless mix of 360 degree hair-trigger movement, influenced by free running with intimate, three dimensional music and sound by Dave Price via individual headphones.
A door opens and an immaculate ?gure steps out onto a roof. Knives are sharpened and the game begins...
Within the suspended reality of a brutal and unforgiving game, THE ROOF will transport audiences into the body of a reluctant hero, desperate to stay alive.
Requardt & Rosenberg and Fuel have been working with 3Run to train the dancers in elements of Parkour. 3Run is a world leading professional performance team specialising in Parkour, based in Basingstoke
