CircusFest 2018

In the 250th anniversary year of the invention of modern circus, CircusFest 2018 focuses on the future of circus: daring and diverse, punky and poetic, subversive and socially aware.

As London’s biennial international festival of contemporary circus, CircusFest takes place at the Roundhouse as well as selected partner venues around London. From the spectacular to the intimate, this year’s CircusFest shows how this art form is always innovating and evolving with fifteen shows, two film projects and artists from three continents including companies from Sweden, USA, Finland and Palestine.

Headlining this programme are two incredibly powerful productions: the world premiere of Relentless Unstoppable Human Machine from the acclaimed Pirates of the Carabina and the UK premiere of Groupe Bekkrell‘s punk show The Bekkrell Effect. Highlights also include the European premiere of The Richochet Project’s Said and Done, 2015 Total Theatre Award winners Palestinian Circus School’s new show SARAB (Mirage), and Ellie Dubois’ award-winning Edinburgh smash hit No Show.
