Danny MacAskill’s Drop & Roll Live is a main highlight of this year’s Underbelly Circus Hub programme and is set to astound Big Top audiences like never before.
After five years touring the world, Drop & Roll Live makes its Edinburgh Fringe Debut with a brand-new show led by world-famous trials rider Danny MacAskill.
MacAskill is joined by highly acclaimed trials rider and fellow Scotsman Duncan Shaw, alongside innovative BMX riders Kriss Kyle and Alex Coleborn who will each perform selected dates across the run. Hosted by extreme sports commentator Henry Jackson, the hour-long show includes plenty of crowd of participation plus prizes to be won throughout.
Fringe audiences will experience an entirely revamped and redevised show which takes the very best elements of the established outdoor performance and moves the action into The Big Top Tent, and packs in a powerful soundtrack matched with an incredible lighting production, elevating the show to a blistering new level!
MacAskill, Shaw and the team won’t be confined to the stage, as every part of the venue, from stairways to walkways become base points for mind-blowing tricks, huge stunts and BIG surprises. Expect an action-packed display of gravity-defying tricks, guaranteed to amaze children and adults alike! The guys will also be available for post-show signings and exclusive Drop & Roll merchandise will be available onsite.
