A joyous physical production that will captivate audiences of all ages.

Inspired by Fellini's 1950s film La Strada, this magical and surreal show tells the tale of smalltime circus act Gubu and Harle. They are one man down... but the show must go on.

When the beautiful Angelina naively steps into the ring she is seduced into becoming part of their act and once more the show is back on the road. In a world of newfound wonder, love and disorder, they flip, they twist, they win, they lose. Now is your chance to enjoy this high-flying, heartwarming story of love and loss at the Circus.

“This is spectacle with a heart; a timeless enactment of jealousy and love, that, in the hands of these performers, is allowed to soar.” The Guardian

We Feel...
Circus is an exhilarating show that had audiences spellbound during its too-short run at Project Arts Centre last November.
