We're really pleased to present our new outdoor touring show Planetary. The premier is at Unwrapped Festival in Eastleigh on 13th June.
We're welcoming two new aerialist performers Laura Cork and Fran Widdowson to the team with direction by Helen Parlor (Something to Hold, ParlorDance) and circus direction from Paul Evans. Find full dates below with the full story, regular updates and full team details on our website.
We would like to invite you to a work in progress preview at Greentop Circus on 4th June at 1030 am (please RSVP here) and we're aiming for an outdoor preview at Victoria Works on June 10th at 530pm.
Massive thank you to Arts Council England Lottery Funding for support of development of Planetary and our other touring work over the summer. Thanks to Victoria Works and Greentop for hosting development.

Planetary : "Three travelers arrive with an irresistible invitation to a giant puzzle, a spinning planet forged from 80 metres of steel pipe. There’s one prize and they each want it with every bone in their bodies. The only problem is that none of us has a clue how to get it.
SNOW WHITE Co-production with Tell Tale Hearts at Lawrence Batley Theatre
We have recently received brilliant confirmation of support from Arts Council England alongside Lawrence Batley Theatre for our co-production of Snow White with Tell Tale Hearts. Live music, a girl trapped in a mirror, a wronged step mother, a missing father, a transforming aerial set AND nearly 7 miners. Tickets on sale soon...
