“Brainfools presented an inventive, often funny ensemble work comprising skilled aerial work, clowning and acrobatics„
Let‘s dig a little deeper
Why is it important?
Most of the cast are living in London, where every day we witness some quite upsetting scenes dehumanizing marginalized groups such as homeless & migrants.
We feel the urge to produce work that works digs a little deeper into societal issues and sparks some thought and some change.
Who are we?
Finn & Toffy are the founders of Brainfools, a grassroot circus company that tells social stories. Toffy is responsible for the Brain as Producer and Finn adds a bit of foolishness as a creative director.
What started as two people is now are a group or acrobats, dancers, puppeteers, musicians and artists. Most of us recently graduated from the National Centre for Circus in London. Where we made the decision we want to create circus that has a bit of meaning but keeps a light hearted essence.
So our credo is:
„Soulful Stories - Silly Circus“
We call our selves Brainfools. We are currently 10 artists working together as a collective.
Ultimately, we explore new and innovative pathways to bring the thrills, spills, and chills of live performance to the worlds’ audiences.
Who is it for?
The Show is a mature family show. It explores social themes in a fun uplifting way. It has a narrative that is interesting for adults and a visual style that appeals to the whole family.
A large focus for the tour is to reduce the carbon footprint to as little as possible. With e.g. using electric carsWe want to go further. We want to know the extent to which these measures reduce our CO2 emittance, if there are other things we could be doing and how to calculate and record this data so that we can scrutinise and better understand the tour’s environmental impact.
