Circolombia : 14th April – Sunday 3rd May 2015

Circolombia : 14th April – Sunday 3rd May 2015

Circolombia took the Roundhouse by storm back in 2011 with their explosive sell-out hit URBAN. Now they’re back by popular demand with the UK premiere of a much anticipated new production.
 
This is no ordinary circus company. The sheer power of the performers, coupled with mind-boggling skill and a willingness to take terrifying risks on stage delivers world-class, gravity-defying performances that you’ll never forget.
 
This new production is inspired by Colombia’s diverse communities and features 14 of the most talented performers from across Colombia. Mixing spectacular circus with dance and an original soundtrack, it’s set to fill the Roundhouse with the same infectious energy that left such a huge impression on audiences and critics back in 2011.
 
All of the artists trained at the National School of Circo Para Todos (“Circus For All”) that supports the most vulnerable, at risk young people in Colombia through professional circus training. The young company includes some of the most revered circus performers in the world. It’s an incredible journey, and an even more incredible company.
 
Circolombia is led by its founder, Artistic Director and Creative Producer Felicity Simpson. This new production will be directed by Renato Rocha and co-directed by Keziah Serreau. Rocha and Serreau were also director and co-director, respectively, of The Dark Side Of Love, a Roundhouse collaboration with LIFT (London International Festival of Theatre) in association with the RSC, as part of World Shakespeare Festival in 2012. Music will be composed by Ryan Wilmott, who provided the score for Circolombia’s URBAN, with scenography by Philippe Legars.
