The Giant and The Bear
A family show combining theatre and circus skills performed indoors, outdoors and under a big top. An invisible giant and a mean ring master conspire to prevent the rollerskating bear realising his dream of swinging from the high trapeze alongside the flying ballerina.
Collaborating with: Unlimited Theatre, Hide&Seek, Layla Rosa and West Yorkshire Playhouse, developed through Furnace. A Festival 2012 event.
June – July 2012
“It all came together in the circus acts because you were watching characters that you knew not just circus performers – a different circus experience.”
“Amazing acrobatics, thrilling show, gorgeous hairy bear, total lunacy, children and adults alike enthralled”
“Inspired me to be a flying bear… to join the circus and be a clown.”
