Infiltration is a 45-minute outdoor live-action spy thriller aerial-combat show with innovative flying techniques, martial arts, acrobatics, slapstick & clowning.
The Ashbury-de-la-Zouch Amateur Dramatic Society are premiering their new play Infiltration. The programme says, “Rival teams of international secret agents use gravity defying stunts, battling to control vital secrets to give their nation the lead in the Cold War. Set over the 1960’s to the present, Infiltration highlights the cyclical nature, futility of conflict & the endless repetition of The Cold War.” Bold claims. Can they deliver?
Inspired by fast-paced action films, 60s spy shows & the early Bond films. The show draws on Jackie Chan’s signature use of brooms, ladders & other objects as weapons, with innovative wirework, stunning movement and comedic combat. It’s a witty, dynamic, high-tempo production with exciting aerial feats in an all-live, action packed experience.
In a nutshell – If Jackie Chan met Charlie Chaplin & they made a live action spy thriller version of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon set during the Cold War, you’d get Infiltration!
