Circus Tricks

0 Love It

Tête à Tête presents Michael Henry and Adey Grummet's music drama set in a circus. The knife thrower's assistant cannot stand the pain of her secret love for the knife thrower, an acrobat fights the world through the bottle, his brother struggles to catch him one more time, the trapeze artist is entranced by the pursuit of a single moment of weightlessness, the horse dreams of running in straight lines and the contortionist is just plain lonely. And then there's the elephant… With Yvette Bonner (Alice the trapeze artist), Lilly Papaioannou (Xiu, the Mongolian contortionist), Alison Crookendale (Tanya, the knife-thrower's assistant), Daniel Broad

(Jack the knife thrower), Christopher Diffey (Barney the trick pony)

Daniel Keating-Roberts (Tom the acrobat) and Simon Wilding (Jemmy the acrobat). Chroma conducted by Gerry Cornelius. The director is Bill Bankes-Jones. (Suitable for ages seven and over.)
