Lift UP

3 Weeks Contemporary Circus R&D Project (1 week Prep + 1-2 weeks R&D)

Come with us on a journey of relationships clashing, (human) bridges and buildings breaking and falling. When the characters reach an exasperated low from competitive defeat against one another, their perspective change as they literally begin rebuilding human trust within the group.

Following the success of Brains fools’ arts council funded tour throughout the South of England, we are now looking to branch out and reach other areas in the community.

Join the cast as they perform daring aerials, acrobatic feats inspired by the writings of philosopher Martin Buber.
