Event date: Saturday 14th August
Venue: Chyan Big Top Dome
Performance Start: 7pm // Daytime workshops: TBC
Performance Tickets: £8 Adult // £5 Benefits, Children under 16 // £18 Family of 3
Tilly Lee Kronick: Ripe
What do you expect when you see me? Ripe is a surreal exploration of our attitudes and assumptions towards female performers. Using technical static trapeze, contemporary dance and original text, Ripe aims to unpeel stereotypes that people wrap around women’s bodies.
Estimated running time: 20-30 mins
Everyone welcome, but as a guide we recommend the show for Teenagers and above
Company Zid: Routine
At the crossroads between parkour and circus Routine is a physically dynamic comedy about boredom with a twist of hope. A world where some spend their days leaning against walls and are suddenly compelled to self challenge, fly and break boundaries.
In order to step up, Routine invites us to use our body and mind as the one and only means of survival.
Estimated running time: 35 mins
