A mind-blowing live action and adventure show designed and hosted by Bear Grylls alongside a cast of expert aerial artists and stunt crew, Endeavour: Your Adventure Awaits will take the audience on a hair-raising, immersive, theatrical expedition across the globe using state of the art video mapping technology and stunning special effects. Celebrating some of the greatest feats of courage, endurance and endeavour through the ages, fans will witness the heroism and adventure that have shaped our world.
Bear will guide the audience on a journey, uncovering true life stories of survival from frozen Antarctica and the cruel winds of Everest, to the humid jungle and shark-infested waters. The audience will be swept into the heart of the action, with worlds that appear and fade away before them, they will see the tiny detail of rock crumbling beneath Bear’s feet as he climbs and witness him seemingly swimming with sharks before their very eyes. Through dizzying aerial stunts and intimate storytelling, Bear will reveal the wonder of our planet and the important value of mankind’s indomitable human spirit. A truly breathtaking experience.
Bear Grylls said: “I am so excited to see this show truly come to life, and to be able to take people on this incredibly inspiring journey of courage, heroism and survival against all the odds.
With Endeavour we harness so much ground-breaking new technology to take the audience on a very intimate, immersive & at times terrifying journey through some of the greatest and most unknown feats of exploration.
It is a truly uplifting experience this show, and I am so proud of it – and it reminds us all that at the heart of so many of mankind’s greatest achievements and hair raising adventures is this one word: Endeavour.”
Endeavour is produced in association with Bear Grylls Ventures and by arrangement with Peters Fraser + Dunlop.
