THE CHOSEN HARAM

Performed on two Chinese poles this emotionally candid yet heartwarming story unfolds with gravity-defying tricks and extraordinary movement. 

The Chosen Haram deals with themes around sexuality, faith, addiction and connection. It tells the story of two queer men and their chance meeting through a dating app, portraying the highs and lows of their relationship and the barriers they face, both social and cultural, in seeking happiness and personal fulfillment.
