Death or Circus

Category: Show Related artist: Tumble Circus

We need advise, guidance and heroes. Kenneth Fall, and Tina Machina, are underqualified, but overly eager to share their absurd views on how to cure the planet. Can celebrity anarchists and circus devilment save our children?
Death or Circus is a bad advise, absurd circus satire on modern culture using circus skills (duo trapeze, corde lisse, partner acrobatics, hula hoop, slapstick and clowning) Death or Circus is a comedy street theatre show, a show that is not afraid to ask challenging questions, questions about modern culture, and questions like why does Tina’s sister look like a man in drag?

Street theatre from the dark side of feel good. Dysfunctional family entertainment. Through circus, clown and theatre, we hope to disturb, take over, inspire change and mostly remind people that they are not alone.

Death or Circus is a medium scale, high quality, interactive, circus comedy theatre show designed for outdoors. It is a unique experience for the audience to be able to be this close to aerial and acrobatic acts.
The show is based around an 8 m high trapeze rig and ford transit van as a stage. This is highly visible in most public spaces and draws attention by its very presence.
Tumble Circus create work that is accessible to all. This show is family entertainment, but contains some strong language and adult humour which people of all ages will enjoy.
