“This is a great family show, full of easy humour.”
– The Guardian
Simultaneously energetic and delicate, seven skilled acrobats thumb their noses at the rules of gravity. In this dizzying collection of new circus acts, you become intimate with the stripped back stage where physical limits are pushed to the brink and the usual guards are broken down, exposing the reality of failure and weakness. Evoking real and visceral responses in audiences, A Simple Space is a truly unique experience not to be missed.
Performance advisory: Plastic balls will be given to the audience to throw at the performers.
