AntiGravity: The 2007 Tour, the action-packed performance that melds "aerial acrobatics, extreme sports and urban dance with technology and popular culture," will play Manhattan's Hammerstein Ballroom June 27-July 1.

This is a New York return for the troupe that has been thrilling audiences since 1990.

The "full-scale show" promises to be "a highly visceral experience and a wildly fun night of awe-inspiring, death-defying levity set to the biggest names in pop music," according to the announcement.

Presented in New York by Manhattan Center, AntiGravity: The 2007 Tour is conceived, directed and choreographed by founder Christopher Harrison (in collaboration with Team AntiGravity), with costume design by Shelly Bomb, lighting design by Herrick Goldman, rigging design by AntiGravity Aerials Inc. and sound design by John Smith.

AntiGravity: The 2007 Tour marks the company's fourth full-length original production. In 2001, the critically acclaimed AntiGravity's Crash Test Dummies sold out a limited run at the New Victory Theatre Theatre on 42nd Street. Their 2002 production AntiGravity: An American Band debuted at the Sundance Film Festival and ran through the Olympics. The following year, their show The AntiGravity Party sold out its engagement at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles.

AntiGravity's most recent New York appearance involved repelling eight performers from the top of Rockefeller Center for the premiere of "Spider-Man 3" in early May. AntiGravity: The 2007 Tour is produced in association with Metropolitan Talent Presents.

The show will play six performances at the Hammerstein Ballroom, 311 West 34th Street, between Eighth and Ninth Avenues. Performances are Wednesday, June 27 through Sunday, July 1 at 8 PM, with an additional 3 PM matinee on Saturday, June 30.

With two additional "satellite stages" on the Hammerstein Ballroom's main floor "and plenty of incredible aerial action overhead," tickets for the orchestra level viewing are $35, and are general admission (all standing-room, no seating).

Tickets for the two balcony tiers (reserved seating) are $40-$45.

For tickets, visit Ticketmaster locations or Ticketmaster.com or call (212) 307-4100.

AntiGravity: The 2007 Tour runs one hour and 45 minutes (including intermission). The show is recommended for ages 10 and up. Visit www.anti-gravity.com for more information.
