Galumpha

The human jungle gym

About

They can if they're Galumpha. Combining stunning acrobatics, striking visual effects, physical comedy, and inventive choreography, Galumpha transforms three human bodies into one floating, flying, and gravity-defying piece of art, The Human Jungle Gym. Winners of the Edinburgh Festival Critics' Choice Award, world-class acrobatic choreographers Andy Horowitz, Marlon Torres, and Kate Vollrath cause an unknown world of bodily movement to literally take shape. This is no special effect or digital trickery. Galumpha calls on imagination, muscle, and merriment to create a sensory feast of images, turning the human body into shapes and structural forms that seem to break all the laws of physics. Audiences young and old are caught up in this whirlwind of movement that consistently brings spectators to their feet and takes Galumpha off theirs.
