Swing Circus

Circus City 2017

Fri 20 October 7:00 PM , Sat 21 October & Sun 22 October 4.00 PM (includes workshop and evening performance)

Circus feats to swingin' beat! Come join the swing circus for a day.

You’ll meet specialist Charleston choreographers from BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing and get a chance to have a go yourself, you'll also see the incredible skills of top UK circus performers including high level hulahoop, cyr wheel and juggling.

Swing Circus is passionate about representation and diversity, this means acknowledging the African American roots of Swing as a cultural response to oppression. By working with this joyous artform we seek to bring power to marginalised histories and pleasure to the audiences we share it with.

It’s impossible to hear swing music without a smile on your face or tapping your feet. We want to harness that playful energy to create uplifting, energetic circus and dance shows. Get those happy feet a-movin’, and swing your booty in a hulahoop - guaranteed to leave a smile on your face and a spring on your step, it’s the Swing Circus!

Dress code: vintage swing/circus

Please note: tickets for Swing Circus on Saturday and Sunday include both a workshop and an evening performance, which will start at 4pm. If you wish to only attend the performance, please book for Friday.

You can also book a meal ticket to get some delicious food on Saturday and Sunday!

Running time: 105 mins (Fri - performance only) & 285 mins (Sat/Sun including break)
