Dear all

Celebrating Protected content since Philip and Patty Astley pioneered circus in London in Protected content ,Protected content creative producers Crying Out Loud present two summer weekends of distinctive contemporary circus, hip hop dance and music.

Trailblazers Gandini Juggling premiere a special commission, Cascade, over the second weekend accompanied by the rousing sound of brass music played live by Circus Tsuica, a French band of musical acrobats. Performing within the rhythmic rise and fall of the 55 water jets of the courtyard fountains, the 30 jugglers will perform within the constant flow of movement, water and sound to create a mesmerising celebration of skill, beauty and music.

Complementing the action in the courtyard, the East Wing hosts talks and an exhibition that includes a compelling new installation from artist Rose English. Learn about the history of circus, watch short films, and uncover a selection of the pioneers and new thinkers who have transformed the circus field today.

A range of food and drink will be available to purchase on-site.
