Far removed from the fairground image of traditional circus, here you will find a pumping, adrenaline fuelled mix of physical dynamism coupled with grace and beauty. Stunning aerial; fast-paced acro; diabolo, contortion; hand balancing; juggling; and then there are acts that simply defy description, all blended together with a dash of comedy and a great big dollop of wow!
