Programming

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 TroupeFergus J EvansFrederike GerstnerNadia LumleyUchenna DanceHobbitbeatsJuggling on TapLevantes Dance TheatreLin BrodenFolkdance RemixedLords of Strut and Randolph Matthews

“An original idea, brought energetically to life by highly skilled performers.”
