'This heart-stopping performance featured the unusual combination of musical bell-tolling and gravity-defying acrobatics to the delight of crowds'

'When they finish their performance, the 5AngryMen depart as quickly as they appeared (...) There is no talk about a curtain call, the eyes of the audience members are full of tears.'

'

Was it acrobatics? Was it alternative theatre? Was it music? The Bells at Federation Square was all three.

This heart-stopping performance featured the unusual combination of musical bell-tolling and gravity-defying acrobatics to the delight of crowds.'
