If you're around Discovery Green this is what you have to look forward (and up) to

"It's a timeless romantic story," says Strange Fruit manager on tour Nami Hall, not mentioning at first that it's done 15 feet in the air. Two women and two men take to the heights on fiberglass poles to perform Swoon, which combines the elements of dance and circus during the 30-minute performance scheduled for Discovery Green.

Can't quite envision this? Here's a look at them in action:

Above all, "it's accessible," Hall says. At a recent performance it wasn't just the audience who saw it.

"People in their offices working could see us blocks away," says Hall who grew up in Portland, Oregon and went on to graduate from circus school in Melbourne, Australia. They're hoping the same thing happens in Houston.

The group has been performing since 1994, traveling all around the world.

Strange Fruit performances are scheduled for 8 p.m. September 20, 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. September 21, and 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. September 22. Discovery Green, 1500 McKinney. For information, call 713-400-7336 or visit discoverygreen.com. Free.
