But when it was my turn to hang upside down from my knees I resembled a very scared vampire bat. I came down the rope with renewed respect for circus folk and the circus life.
And that is what this new show is all about: a rumbustious music-heavy comedy about the life of the circus. It starts with a clown’s death and tells the story, in flashback, of a circus family over some 100 years. “So you will see some changes in style, different styles of clowning and costume,” says Alwen. No animals, then? “Yes, but they’ll be physical theatre animals.”
