Sunday 7 August I Afternoon
Little Wormwood Scrubs, 1 Dalgarno Gardens, London, W10 5LL
Leading contemporary circus company Upswing for a fun-filled afternoon of free dynamic performances and interactive Circus skills workshops. Circus Flavours is a high-energy, breath-taking contemporary Circus show suitable for children and families. Upswing’s diverse and highly skilled performers will demonstrate their incredible blend of acrobatics and physical theatre and performances will be followed by free hands-on aerial workshops for children (8+).
Circus Flavours is a platform for Upswing’s associate artists to present themselves to a live audience, their way. Earlier this year Upswing commissioned their associates to develop news acts for Circus Flavours – offering an opportunity to experiment, progress their skills and ease back into live performance, after the break of the pandemic. Their Circus Flavours film is a celebration of these artists and gives a glimpse into the drive and dedication that leads them to create their incredible work.
What’s better than watching an inspiring show from top circus artists? That might be having the opportunity to learn the circus skills afterwards which anyone aged 8+ can do.
