about the show
Inspired by 80s teen films, Filament follows 8 characters and their coming-of-age stories. This new approach to storytelling combines astonishing circus skills with tales of love, self-discovery, acceptance, and betrayal. Mix in dazzling lights and an infectious soundtrack, Filament brings a fresh yet familiar take on acrobatic theater.
