A captivating evening of circus and aerial performances that stretched beyond the norm.
Upswing partnered with Certain Blacks for this mixed-bill artist showcase of new work that included roller skates, Chinese pole work and feats via aerial silks woven into stories of birth, race, gender and the cabaret at the end of the world
The artists involved had emerged from our arts development residency (also named Circus Circus Circus) at 101 Creation Space in Greenham Common. Read more about the Circus Circus Circus residency here.
The culminating Circus Circus Circus festival took place in 2019 in London’s historic Hoxton Hall. Athena Kugblenu hosted the night, with performances by Symoné, Joana Dias, Out Of Order, Sadiq & Hauk and Amelia Cavallo AKA King Tito Bone
“Friday at Hoxton Hall was an exciting collection of raw talent from a new generation of makers. Well done for spotting and nurturing the potential in those artists who will become new diverse voices in the future.” – Rachel Clare, Artistic Director, Crying Out Loud
