Roundhouse CircusFestVaudeville, circus and cabaret come to the Roundhouse for a five week season of CircusFest, as a colourful mix of renowned theatre companies and circus groups take to the stage. There are performances from the likes of La Meute, masters of the seldom seen Russian Swing; Company 2, the company behind the international smash-hit Cantina; and an exciting new collaboration between a group of world-class circus performers and a brilliant young LGBTQ cast who perform the world premiere of Puffball. Performances will also be taking place away from the main house, in various venues including a pop-up tent where the UK premiere of Capilotractees, a show inspired by the old and forgotten circus art of hair hanging, takes place. It's also host to the world premiere of Belonging, a new collaboration between UK company Graeae and Brazil's Circo Crescer e Viver, featuring performers from the London 2012 Paralympic Games Opening Ceremony and Brazilian actors, musicians and dancers being trained for the Rio 2014 Paralympic Games Opening Ceremony. This pretty much sets the tone for what to expect from CircusFest - something a bit crazy, anarchic and high octane.

 

About Roundhouse

It's great to see this fabulous arts venue re-open its doors after a stunning refurbishment. Boasting a colourful history, the Roundhouse initially started life as an engine shed. It was later transformed into a bonded warehouse for Gilbey's Gin before Arnold Wesker the playwright came along in 1964 and established Centre 42 here, insisting it became one of the most cutting-edge performing arts venue in the country.
