The Australian aerial group, Club Swing, toured this performance between 1992 and 1997. In 1995 Edinburgh city councillors campaigned to ban the show from the Edinburgh Festival because it was considered degrading to women. It presented sensuous movement set to a soundtrack that included opera and pop music. On the ground was fruit, chocolate and cakes which the performers consumed with erotically suggestive gestures.
