Two soldiers serve in wars 100 years and over 3000 miles apart: the Belgian battlefields of the Great War and the streets of present day Kabul.
As we approach the centenary of WW1 and the withdrawal of UK troops from Afghanistan, Gravity and Levity collaborates with director/choreographer Darshan Singh Bhuller and BBC Afghanistan Correspondent David Lyon to portray intimate images of endurance, grief, humour and hope.
Performed on a 6 metre high climbing wall, a cast of six aerialists and dancers combine their rich visual language with music, film projections and news commentary to reveal the ugly truths and unexpected beauty of living and loving through conflicts, then and now.
