Sequins and Sawdust - South Bank

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

A NEW circus show, Sequins and Sawdust: From Birth to Death and everything in between, runs from Monday, April 16 to Saturday, April 21, 2007 on the Upper Ground of the South Bank.

Within the magical space of the Big Top, aspects of everyday life gain a hint of the extraordinary. Intrigue, romance, deceit and the struggle for power mark out the life of ageing clown, Phinnaeus Capelli.

Over 25 performers tell his story through breathtaking circus skills, live music, physical theatre and comedy.

Sequins and Sawdust is a new collaboration between Cirque Bijou, The Circus Space and Bristol Old Vic Theatre School; and is sponsored by Bristol Alliance.

Tickets: £15 (concessions available).
