Three eccentric (albeit handsome) scientists attempt to create the elixir of life blending breathtaking acrobatic skills, hilarious antics and pulsing sweaty muscles. Nothing goes to plan and the effects the elixir results in barely clad bodies, boisterous mayhem with impeccable comic timing!

Finely chiselled brainiacs fly metres into the air from the teeterboard, spinning upside down on the mesmerising cyr wheel, balancing one arm handstands on wobbling canes and swinging on their head from the trapeze.

Remember to breathe, this is bare-chested brinkmanship, bold and hilarious! Brave the heat, see the sweat! Elixir is uninhibited, it’s bold and it’s hilarious.
