No Show deconstructs superhuman circus performers and shows them as vulnerable and human. This is a production that puts female strength, skill and power centre stage.
**Extra performance added on Wednesday 17 October 4.30pm***
What do you expect when you go to the circus?
The greatest show on earth?
The glitzy smiles, the glitter of sequins, the drum rolls as performers who seem super human effortlessly perform death-defying acts?
No Show joyously and heartbreakingly reveals what lies hidden beneath the showmanship. There will be desperate attempts and heroic failures, glorious achievements and bruised bodies and egos as the performers push themselves to their physical and mental limit. See behind the flawless smiles and perfect execution of the traditional circus performance to show the wobbles, the pain, and the real cost of aiming for perfection.
A show for anyone who has tried, failed and failed better.
