No Sweat, a spectacularly physical show about woman by women.

Ten daring female performers defy the laws of gravity on a soundtrack featuring the music and songs of iconic female artist, including Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin, Florence + The Machine, Missy Elliot, and Grace Jones.

From a bare a stage the design explodes into an elaborate installation of flown poles and fixed bars that integrates multiple rope (that also acts as a screen) acrobatics, contact dance, handstand, Chinse pole, and ensemble dance.

The international multi-skilled cast performs in, around and above, working themselves and each apparatus to its breaking point. The Generating Company (Genco) breaks down the barriers between circus, dance, and theatre.
