DAMN THE CIRCUS
A SHOW ABOUT PHYSICAL POETRY AND ANNOYING REALITY
Damn everything but the circus. She is a cruel and a demanding mistress. In her crown of sequins and sawdust, youth will perish, talent will bleed and yet we love her so.
Damn the Circus is Tumble Circus eagerly anticipated new show. With trapeze, hula-hoops, juggling, acrobatics and silks, Damn the Circus is a tale about making the dream of circus and it’s hard annoying reality. With it’s dazzling blend of theatre, slapstick, poetry and daring acrobatics, Damn the Circus showcases Irish contemporary circus at it’s finest – funny, flexible and refreshingly honest.
Kenneth Fall, Tina Machina and Ursula Burns are the international award winning Tumble Circus. All three have been seduced and cursed by circus. Ken and Tina met passing juggling clubs on South Ann Street in Dublin in 1998, they have been working together ever since. Ursula, supplies the live soundtrack and is the most dangerous harpist in the world ran away with the circus when she was 14, but her mother still doesn’t know.
