ON/OFF is a triumphant celebration of our third-year students, as they perform the fruits of their passion, blood, sweat, and tears in their graduate showcase.

Revel in 20 rounds of contortion, roue cyr, hand to hand, tightwire, tissu, trapeze, hula hoop, hoop diving, Chinese pole, and acrobatic whip – a series of untouched and self-directed acts designed by a group whose reputation precedes them.

Peel back the layers of an artist, the myriad of roles they embrace both on and off stage that coalesce to form an exceptional performer. Bear witness as they unveil their raw vulnerability and unwavering strength, each seizing their moment in the spotlight with a commanding presence.

Step into the realm of their artistic creation one last time before these extraordinary students embark on their separate journeys.
