Media Centre > What's On > Circolombia - URBAN

 
Thu 17 - Fri 18 May 2012 (ARCHIVED LISTING)

Circolombia’s highly acclaimed show URBAN will thrill audiences with a unique blend of electrifying circus, South American hip-hop and reggaeton dance.

Set against the backdrop of the Colombian city Cali, URBAN features graduates of the Colombian National circus school Circo Para Todos. A tale of confrontation and redemption, of gangs and individual freedom, of poetics and cruelty, URBAN is the voice of these young people; telling the world what it’s like in their reality, through their experiences on the streets of Cali, their hearts minds and spirits, and most of all, through their bodies.

"It's dance meets circus, with an infectious rough-and-raw energy" The Metro
 
"One of the most electrifying, exciting troupes I've ever seen" Sunday Times
 
“The Best of London” "vibrant and pulsating with a killer urban soundtrack.” TNT 
 
"Circolombia's infectiously energetic spirit." The Times
 
Orginally commissioned by the Roundhouse London as part of CircusFest
