About Tape That!

The audience, young and old, were entranced by their skills, and the play between the characters they portrayed. A beautiful show, full of heart.

Venue programmer

Acrobatics, juggling, physical theatre and suitcase full of duct tape.

Tape That! is a charming, light-hearted, non-verbal acrobatic duet. Two performers construct a visual world using colourful tape, object manipulation and partner acrobatics. A simple roll of tape transforms from DJ decks to a spyglass, and is stretched to create physical barriers and obstacles for the performers to navigate.

When challenges present themselves, just how many problems can be fixed with a few rolls of duct tape?
