So, what is Strange Fruit?

This is from their brochure:

“Strange Fruit is a Melbourne-based performing arts company that produces and
performs a remarkable style of work that fuses theatre, dance and circus, using a
unique elevated medium.”

“Perched atop 4 metre high flexible poles of original design, the troupe delivers a
sublime performance, bending and swaying in the air, captivating and engaging
the audience in absolute fascination.”

On Saturday morning, I drove to downtown LA to see a free performance of their show "Swoon". The performance was sponsored by Brookfield Properties, the managers of the 7+Fig shopping mall. These are some of the descriptive words I would use:

Awe Inspiring
High, Very High
Too Brief

Now, here are some more photos. You knew that, didn't you?

If they come to your area, be sure to see them. It was totally worth the 170 mile round trip.
