Smoke and Mirrors

Thu 11 Feb 2016

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.

‘The beauty of this piece – besides its acrobatic skills, stripped-back aesthetic and eloquent movement – is the way it utilises the circus form as a metaphor to examine a state of mind.’ The Guardian
