Fauna at Brighton Festival
Past Event


Tue 13 Feb 2018

A captivating exploration of primal behaviour in the animal kingdom is the theme of Fauna, the award-winning debut by Sweden's exciting new contemporary circus company.

Five entrancing performers create a tapestry of exceptional skill as they transform their bodies into spiders, lemurs, tree frogs and birds of paradise - acting out the rituals of courtship, cunning, and the simple pleasure of play to an irresistible soundtrack of live guitar.

Winner of Best Circus awards at both Edinburgh and Adelaide Fringe Festivals 2017, Fauna is unlike any circus show you’ll see this year: sensational, sinuous, and full of animal magnetism.
