MISFIT embraces the square peg in the round hole. 

In a bizarre collision of dance and circus the performers are catapulted into emotional and physical extremes. There are times when no one should be looking but one can not resist. Guilt and intrigue. MISFIT presents the private moments when we are too high or too low. Mixing performance with adrenalin and incredible performance apparatus MISFIT looks at the inevitable absurdity of trying to fit in.

Misfit is personal, honest, at times painful, at times darkly funny and at times just a lot of fun.
