There was a time when Ye Gam Theatre were coming to London once a year to do their outstanding production, Jump. They’ve had a break of a year or two, and now it’s time to welcome them back:
Jump — Ye Gam Theatre
Portugal Street, Holborn, WC2A 2HT
28 Oct – 15 Nov
Jump is the gravity-defying, internationally acclaimed show that combines comedy, martial arts and jaw-dropping acrobatics. Jump tells the story of a pair of hapless burglars, who get more than they bargained for when they break into the home of a very unusual family, complete with karate-chopping mother and Tae-kwon-do expert grandfather.

One of Korea’s biggest-selling shows, Jump now has its very own permanent theatre in Seoul and has toured throughout Europe, Asia and America, having been seen by over 3.5 million of people worldwide in 60 cities of 27 countries. This madcap action-packed display of Tae-kwon-do, jaw-dropping flips, dazzling acrobatics and swashbuckling sword fights is a show like no other.
