What is it?
Chivaree Circus and Upstage Creative present CRASH at London’s Winterville, from 28th November to 22nd December.
CRASH is a tale of love, danger and mystery, featuring heart-stopping acrobatics, aerial dance and eerie balletic pieces, to a lyrical electronic soundtrack. Inspired by the 19th century French ballet La Sylphide, CRASH is a retelling of the tale through impressionist, mixed media pop-conceptual circus.
The show, which takes place in the round, comes from the award-winning team that brought Becoming Shades to VAULTS earlier this year. Audiences will be taken on a journey through a compelling emotional landscape of circus, dance and atmospheric soundscapes.
When a mysterious woodland creature appears to a man on the morning of his wedding day, he can’t resist following her. Their love is immortal for true love conquers all. Or does it? When the forest comes alive, who is to say what is real and what is not? Who can you really trust in the moonlight? Who is the hunter and who is the prey?
Chivaree aim to create a combination of high impact circus, dramatic aesthetics and powerful visual narratives. Their last sell-out production, Becoming Shades, ran for two months from January to March 2018, winning an innovation award and being nominated for an Off-West End Award. Founded in 2012, Chivaree has performed across the UK, Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.
