  • Visitor Information

Taking place on the opening weekend of the Dulwich Festival, Weighting is a free circus and dance show about a family living in a grey world of routine across the bridge from a world full of colour, excitement and music. However to get to the other side the family have to risk everything. Performed in Dulwich Park by a cast of seven, the shows takes place on a 12 metre by 12 metre rig which swings and lifts the performers high into the air. A beautiful musical score written by Dom Coyote (Kneehigh, BAC) and Ted Barnes (Beth Orton) is performed by a five-piece band with the finale song sung by a 100 strong choir.
