Why not make a WEEK 53 night of it and book for Charmaine Childs’ Power on the same evening for an extra £5?
A Cirque Bijou and Diverse City partnership
WHAT AM I WORTH?
In a world where there is not enough to go around, survival hangs in the balance and seven extraordinary bodies are made to prove their worth. Amongst them there’s Peggy; she doesn’t have the correct paperwork, Kelly Boy; he’s about to have his benefit cut, Trish; she’s ready to rebel and Evie who’s in charge of it all. Watch as against all the odds, they dance, fly and sing on a tipping and spinning stage where the ground becomes the sky and the floor becomes the ceiling. Who will be left when the world stops spinning?
Joyously bold and exhilarating gutsy, What Am I Worth? features ground-breaking physical moments and an electrifying mix of circus, theatre and original live music. Made in collaboration with 150 marginalised voices from across the UK and Ireland and having wowed audiences of over 8,500 last Summer, the show invites you to be amazed, moved and challenged in equal measure.
About Extraordinary Bodies
Extraordinary Bodies is the UK’s leading, professional, integrated circus company. They create bold, radical and joyous large-scale performance. Their leading artistic practice increases national awareness of the integration of D/deaf, disabled and non-disabled artists working equally together.
They make work with, for and about our communities; work that represents the diverse makeup of our society – onstage, offstage and in the audience.
They are a strong and unlikely partnership between leading showmakers Cirque Bijou and leading arts and diversity practitioners Diverse City. Their partnership breaks boundaries and their work does too.
Supported by Arts Council England.
