Step into the moment where an explosion has been frozen in time, the remnants of a big top caught mid-air – with everything from circus ring, sequins and fairground horses suspended above ground. 
Featuring a breath-taking mix of acrobatics, surprising aerial feats and masterful juggling, The Exploded Circus weaves a story told without words, where six female performers have to come together to seek order in the chaos and create a new normal.  With striking imagery and subtle humour, the show explores themes around change, hope and belonging.

“[It] really was an edge-of-the-seat affair and culminated in a life affirming conclusion.” Worthing Herald

“A magical evening.” ★★★★★ Theatre South East
