French Circus leaps into Great Yarmouth’s Hippodrome
The French Circus comes to town As part of this year's Out There International Festival of Circus and Street Arts on Tuesday, September 4 to Sunday, September 9.
The town's historic circus will welcome Amiens-based Compagnie Bam on Friday, September 7.
The show 'Switch' fuses elements of traditional and contemporary circus with a rock 'n' roll attitude.
Breathtaking acrobatics performed on teeterboard and Chinese pole are delivered in a fast paced show packed with humour, driving rhythms, music and singing.
The potent mix of performance and music takes the essential elements of traditional circus and re-energises them, providing a contemporary perspective that will appeal to all the family.
