Club Gewalt


A sonic theatre podcast based on a concept album based on a theatre show based on a documentary based on a French guy who tightrope walked between the Twin Towers in 1974 (based on a dream).

Early one summer morning in 1974, unsuspecting New York pedestrians were treated to the spectacular sight of high-wire artist Philippe Petit walking back and forth between the Twin Towers. The stunt lasted 45 minutes and later became the subject of an Oscar-winning documentary.

Forty years later, one of Europe’s most exciting young theatre collectives turned to the legend of Philippe Petit to explore their own dreams as artists in their high-energy, electro-pop-fuelled debut production. Subsequently reimagined as a concept album and series of live music-video performances, Man on Wire helped to solidify Club Gewalt’s reputation as a company whose work ‘looks like nothing else on the European stage’ (The New York Times).

Now Soundworlds is delighted to be bringing it to international audiences in a new iteration, which considers the role of inspiration, ambition and risk in art.

Soundworlds presents a new podcast adaptation of the 2014 production / 2015 album by Club Gewalt.
