“Rime” is a new circus show devised and collectively made by Square Peg based on Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s epic poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. With thrilling acrobatics, song and story, Square Peg combine circus with theatre and dance – they use group acrobatics and human towers, Chinese poles, silks, and flips and tricks to tell this beautiful haunting tale.

Rime toured throughout the UK in 2012 and is currently available for indoor and outdoor bookings in the next two years.

Square Peg are produced by Cirquit Productions Limited with support from the Arts Council England, IdeasTap through the Ideas Fund Edinburgh Award, Roundhouse, Jacksons Lane, The Hangar Arts Trust, University of East Anglia, Kiln Ideas ltd. and Throughline.

Rime is co-commissioned by the National Theatre.
