As summer ends and the nights draw in, you may be feeling a little downcast. But don’t worry, a brand new feel-good circus cabaret show is touring the UK to lift our spirits this autumn. And Luminosa is going to be just that little bit different from your usual big top events.
So, what makes this new acrobatic show different? It’s brought to you by innovative circus company, Lost in Translation. Their artists will be complemented by three stellar circus artists and local guest artists for this Luminosa tour.
You’ll get to see Guinness World record holder, strong man Massimiliano Rossetti. He’ll be performing the rarely seen Korean Cradle with his acro-partner and highly-ranked junior gymnast Roisin Morris. On stage with Rossetti and Morris will be dazzling aerialist Tilly Mae, aerial hoop artist Danielle Summer, foot juggler Valerie Jauregui and extraordinary straps performer Holly Downey. Joining the Lost in Translation crew will be three more incredible performers: Sadiq Ali on Chinese pole, Zaki Musa on flying pole and Joana Dias on aerial hoop.
Luminosa, a circus show with a difference
Other artists will rotate into the show throughout the tour, including Lost in Translation co-founder Annabel Carberry bringing her flair and style to hula hoops. Plus, Lawrence Swaddle with his talented acrobatics, and handstand artist and high-level artistic gymnast Tasha Rushbrooke.
With live music by Peter Reynolds (composer for acclaimed show Hogwallops), these incredible circus artists will present a scintillating night of daring feats. So, you can expect lots of fun and fantastic performances in this feel-good show, from some of the very best of British and international circus artists around.
The company are also working with Extraordinary Bodies and Upswing to employ a revolving cast of freelance circus artists and creatives throughout the tour. Keeping the show adaptable and vibrant, guest artists will join the core cast of seven for each venue; giving the show a bit of local personality with every performance.
But that’s not all. Little Luminosa will offer a special daytime version of the cabaret show for all the family to enjoy. Whilst some venues are hosting experimental late night shows with a more risqué feel and post-show DJs. The artists are also hoping to lead some free circus outreach programmes in areas they visit throughout the tour.
