The sweet stickiness of candy floss, whirling colours of ribbon, lightning flashes from the trapeze, laughing at the silly clowns tumbling over and over and over for you. Laughing, always laughing, when the circus comes to town.
Now the famous travelling circus is recruiting! They are promising you a better life. You remember laughing, the happy community and so you think: joy. Why wouldn't you want to leave the dreariness of your hometown for a life of zest and thrill and travel and colour and laughter?
But be careful, no circus is ever what it seems...
Using the allegory of circus and through performance, the production explores the loss, heartbreak and strength it takes for refugees to board an unfit boat to float across the Mediterranean Sea - an experience we cannot otherwise fathom.
Devised by and with a company of multidisciplinary and multicultural Applied Theatre practitioners. Told through a series of circus acts, the production includes multimedia projections, live original music, physical theatre and of course - circus work
