The Urban Playground Team present

Urban Playground’s brilliant performance-parkour (2PK) team recreate the imagined life of a steam locomotive through scenes inspired by the silent movies of Buster Keaton, the gun fights of the old West, the rooftop stunts of James Bond, the daily grind of rush hour, and the heartbreak of the First World War.  

A terrific, high energy performance with lots of wow factor performed outdoors and suitable for audiences of all ages.

A dazzling display of rapid vaults, synchronised tumbles and gravity-defying spins. 
- The Irish Times on The UPG Team
