circusfest is an incredible festival of performers from around the globe held at London, Roundhouse space over five weeks.
it features stints by (if you are ever looking for the most unusual names in the world look to the circus world!) cirque mandingue ('guinean troupe with an infectious mix of high-energy acrobatics and street dance set against a backdrop of live West African drumming and hip hop beats'), undermän ('a swedish company whose latest production is touching and artfully simple - an insight into the lives of circus performers and a tale of passion, love, vegas and loss') and professor vanessa's wondershow ('with the main space transformed into a timeless village green for a magical immersive carnival experience that celebrates the golden era of circus') as well as new commissions from scottee, il pixel rosso.
for that extra bit of magic during the festival the site is also home to a magic mirrors tent and a new photographic exhibition from phil fisk and talks with john paul zaccarini and vanessa toulmin.
'circusfest is guaranteed to amaze, astound and capture the imagination of all.'
