What’s better than watching an inspiring show from top circus artists? Having the opportunity to learn their skills afterwards.
Leading contemporary circus company Upswing’s diverse and highly skilled performers will be demonstrating their incredible blend of acrobatics and physical theatre over two days in the Royal Docks. Then, after each show the artists will lead open circus workshops, where you can try out what you’ve just seen.
With its unique combination of risk-taking, trust and collaboration, circus is a fun and exciting activity for all ages. Circus Flavours is just what you need to get a taste of the art form. Suitable for ages 5+.
For anyone who’s dreamt of joining the circus!
