“ **** The amazement, the fascination of the show is the micro-second timing, the only-just-missed disaster, the incessant and gratuitous slapstick…Great skill. Great fun.” Financial Times



Jump, the internationally acclaimed show by Ye Gam Theatre that combines comedy, martial arts and jaw-dropping acrobatics, returns to Sadler’s Wells’ Peacock Theatre from Tuesday 28 October - Saturday 15 November 2014.


Since its inception in 2003, Jump has achieved sell-out shows and loyal fans. In 2008 Jump was awarded the prize for The Best Performing Arts of Korea by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Korea.


One of Korea’s biggest-selling shows, Jump now has its own permanent theatre in Seoul and has toured throughout Europe, Asia and America. It has been seen by over 3.5 million people worldwide in 60 cities in 27 countries. It was last performed at the Peacock Theatre in 2009.


Described as Jackie Chan meets Charlie Chaplin, the show tells the tale of an extraordinary Korean family whose chaotic home is disturbed by burglars. The burglars, however, have picked the wrong family. From the draconian grandfather and unwittingly dangerous drunken uncle to the aggressively assertive mother, the family members relish nothing more than the challenge of martial arts showdowns. Impeccable timing, hilarious physical comedy, impressive acrobatics and taekwondo moves ensue as the family fight to rid themselves of their unwelcome guests.


With a nod to popular martial arts series and movies, ranging from seventies TV show Monkey to Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Jump is a madcap action-packed display of Taekwondo, gravity-defying flips, dazzling acrobatics and swashbuckling sword fights.
