A circus of devilment

A satirical circus show. The show is about a bunch of circus performers engaged in the pursuit of circus devilment, but confined to a world of pain and intolerance. Unsuitable has a cast of 5 internationally renowned circus artists from Ireland, Sweden and Australia. The show has acrobats, aerialists, jugglers and clowns. There are solo acts and groups acts. There are moments of physical poetry.

There are astounding feats of circus ability. There are questions about gender, about race, about identity, and there will be comedy. People will laugh, people will think and people will be amazed.
Our circus is, a mutation of the form that takes inspiration from contemporary, modern and new circus movements. It is our goal to recreate the experience of Irish circus.
