Viola: A New Shakespearean Circus on Friday 11th October 2019

Viola is a brand new aerial theatre exploration using aerial and acrobatic movement to investigate the psychological journey through gender identity, anxiety and isolation. Reimagining Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night through the eyes of our titular heroine, Viola interweaves Shakespeare’s original text with aerial performance (Silks and Corde Lisse), floor acrobatics and live violin & cello to illuminate the inner questions and turmoil of Shakespeare’s most vibrant heroine.

Created and directed by Charlotte McKechnie and choreographed by Adam Wright, Viola represents a radical, darker reimagining of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedy, using breath-taking physicality and transfixing soundscape. | @CirqueViola
