Upswing celebrates the circus of today, but also explores how it could develop for tomorrow’s audiences. Alongside creating original in-house productions, we curate and program events that showcase fresh ideas and develop new work.
The flagship event in pursuit of this goal is BITES:Remix, a spectacular evening celebrating unusual artistic collaborations. Originally developed in partnership with The Albany, BITES:Remix brings outstanding circus artists together with musicians, dancers, poets and artists from almost every discipline, with a view to supporting exciting new work and challenging the art form.
Previous BITES:Remix nights have included performances from: Barely Methodical Troupe, Fergus J Evans, Frederike Gerstner, Nadia Lumley, Uchenna Dance, Hobbitbeats, Juggling on Tap, Levantes Dance Theatre, Lin Broden, Folkdance Remixed, Lords of Strut and Randolph Matthews
“An original idea, brought energetically to life by highly skilled performers.”
