Extraordinary Bodies (UK)
World Première

Saturday 9 June, 2pm & 7pm

Venue:
Festival HQ @ Carlow College

Free / Donation

Seven extraordinary artists dance, fly, catch, play and sing on a flying, tipping, and spinning stage, as they grapple with what it means to value each other in a world of instant judgments.

The award winning, integrated circus company Extraordinary Bodies (UK), worked with a group of disabled and non-disabled Carlow community members to create this groundbreaking new show for 2018.

Carlow Arts Festival is partnering with a number of UK venues and festivals to present this work, which will have its World Première in Carlow before embarking on a UK Tour ending at the National Theatre River Stage in London.

This highly skilled and beautifully touching circus show for all ages features an exceptional cast of diverse and extraordinary bodies.

This show is fully accessible with integrated audio description and sign language interpretation (BSL & ISL). Touch tours are available before each show.

Extraordinary Bodies are supported by Arts Council England and the show has been developed with the support of the National Theatre (London).
