Mark Murphy’s V-TOL presents



A life or death love story.

Ellen has been in an accident. She’s disorientated, in pain, and her husband Anthony is missing.

Once safely cocooned her crashed imagination takes over the show - creating a vivid inward cinema in which she reviews her life. But Ellen is left with a heart-breaking decision to make - her life or her love.

Breath-taking aerial movement, live original music, explosive special effects and interactive projection combine to tell a moving tale - part medical drama, part love story - all set in Ellen's subconscious.

Mark Murphy's signature mix of ground breaking aerial choreography, original text and explosive special effects combine in a show that is both intense psychological thriller and heart-rending medical drama.
