Watch Me Fall
Watch Me Fall
A performance by Action Hero

Im  going  over  in  a  barrel.  Im  leaving  the  cannon,  hitting  the  ramp  at  90mph  and clearing  ten  double  decker  buses.  This  time,  Im  going  higher,  further  and  faster. Tonight, I will attempt the impossible.

Action  Hero  bring  their  legendary  DIY  stunt  show Watch  Me  Fall  back  to  Forest Fringe. Shown at Forest Fringe as a work-in-progress in 2008 and as a finished piece in  2011,  Watch  Me  Fall  has  subsequently  toured  all  over  the world  from  PS122  in New  York  to  Theatre  De  La  Ville  in  Paris,  from  Shanghai  Grand  Theatre  to  a  Satans Riders Motor Cycle Club House in Tasmania, and just about everywhere in between.  Not  performed  in  the  UK  since  2012,  Action  Hero  are  thrilled  to  bring  it  back  for Forest Fringes 10th anniversary.

"Very smart, brash and brutally absurd." **** The Guardian.

"An ecstatic atmosphere" The Metro
