Seasons: live theatre in libraries and parks

Seasons by Upswing Pic 2

What is Seasons?

Exploring circus using natural objects.

Two acrobats will dig and climb, find and lose balance using joyful acrobatics and objects accompanied by acoustic and pre-recorded music, to create an engaging interactive performance. The show aims for the audience to see with fresh eyes how humans interact with, and form part of nature.

Groups will sit in their own pod – a pop up tent and will have their own area to spread out in. You can bring along blankets and pillows to make the area your own.

Each pod seats up to a maximum of 6 so bring along your friends and family. Suitable for children aged 5+.

£10 per pod.  Why not share one!
