WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Square Peg Contemporary Circus combines circus, theatre and dance in an adaptation of Coleridge's Epic poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Using the poem to elicit the emotional journey of the groom-to-be in the run up to his wedding, the performance is a combination of group acrobatics, human towers, Chinese pole, ropes and flips, drawn together by one of the UK's freshest new circus companies.
First premiered to a sold out audience at Roundhouse in April 2012, Rime has been performed at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2012 (Herald Angel Award winner), at the National Theatre's Watch This Space festival, and Camp Bestival. This is the first large scale tour of the show. Running time: 60mins. Suitable for all ages.
