Watch Again - Brighton Festival Live: Smoke and Mirrors
Circus as you’ve never seen it before: audacious and thought-provoking, technically brilliant and profound. The Ricochet Project is pushing the boundaries of contemporary circus using poetic acrobatics, contemporary dance, contortion and high-flying feats to explore the human condition. Revealing the inner workings of the mind and our search to find a place of realness and connection in an enduring culture of illusion, Smoke and Mirrors is a mesmerising and intimate two-hander for grown-ups.
Caution: contains strobe lighting and partial nudity
If you enjoy this live stream, then you might be interested in some of the events still coming up at Brighton Festival:
Thoughts of migration, belonging and the fleeting nature of what surrounds us are subtly provoked by this site-responsive promenade piece, which combines contemporary dance, physical theatre and an unusual use of objects and locality.
French company Retouramont creates an opening in the dense sprawl of the city – a ‘clairière urbaine’, or urban clearing – for this free outdoor dance performance. Finding outlets for its expressive aerial choreography in the bustle of city streets, its dancers integrate into the architecture and populate the empty spaces between the buildings, monuments and thoroughfares of the urban jungle.
Imagine a world where you can’t progress despite your best efforts to push forward. Multi-awardwinning Czech company VerTeDance presents a beautifully poignant dance piece about our lack of freedom and our power to make decisions.
