Johnny Eck was an American freak show performer born without the lower half of his torso. Eck is best known today for his role in Tod Browning's 1932 cult classic film, Freaks.

Dave Toole is a dancer, choreographer and performer from Leeds. In 2012 he was the man who flew high above the Paralympic Opening Ceremony. This in many ways is the least of what he has done.

This is a show about both of them. And it's about Leeds. Performed in the Tiltyard, the outdoor arena of the Royal Armouries Museum, a part of the city where you can still see old Leeds and new Leeds wrestle it out in overgrown wasteland and old warehouses converted into new flats.

Each member of the audience will be given one of Slung Low's headphone receivers meaning you'll hear the performers intimately no matter where they might be.
