If you’re ready to swing back into summer entertainment with some circus shows, then Lost in Translation’s latest London tour may just be of interest.
Lost in Translation are one of the UK’s leading contemporary circus companies and to celebrate their 10th anniversary they’ll be taking their shows to London. This spellbinding circus company have delighted audiences across the world, from Australia to the Edinburgh Fringe.
As leaders in the field of story-led circus productions, Lost in Translation’s summer tour will feature full-length productions with some amazing acrobatic skills on display. And high-kicking off this tour, they will bring Above to Wandsworth Arts Fringe this June.
Above is a work-in-progress, but it’s nonetheless an enchanting circus fable. Inspired by Italo Calvino’s novel The Baron in the Trees, Above tells the story of a rebellious spirit who leaps from the ground to take up life amongst the treetops. This new show is designed to delight audiences of all ages, so no matter how old you are, it’s worth a watch. You can expect high-flying aerial stunts, amazing acrobatics and hilarious knockabout slapstick juggling in this comical show.

Then, from July, you can check into the much-loved Hotel Paradiso at the Rose Theatre, Kingston and the Underbelly Festival in Cavendish Square. This laugh-out-loud circus caper is a hilarious and boisterous show for adults and children alike. You will be treated to amazing aerial stunts, floor acrobatics and juggling, alongside clowning and a soundtrack by renowned composer Peter Reynolds.
