Circolombia presents Urban : 4 Apr 2011 – 16 Apr 2011 / Roundhouse

Following a sell-out run as part of Roundhouse CircusFest in April 2010, Circolombia are back with a reworking of Urban for 2011.

Forget everything you know about circus. Circolombia is nothing like the sword throwing, tight-rope walking, animal jumping circus you remember as a child. Circolombia is gritty, modern, full of attitude and comprised of a motley crew of exuberant young artists, whose awe-inspiring acrobatic prowess is matched by their high voltage energy. 

Circolombia is a product of the Circo Para Todos circus school for Colombia’s vulnerable street children, providing an alternative to youth gangs and violence through the teaching of circus arts. Following rigorous professional training and development, the young company that has emerged from the school has quickly gained international recognition as the future of circus performance. And all without a jumping animal in sight. 

Set against the backdrop of the Colombian city Cali, Urban weaves through the dark street life, unearthing the joy and violence deeply familiar to the artists. With a pounding soundtrack, raw contemporary aesthetic and volcanic force, Urban is truly unforgettable.

‘One of the world’s most exciting youth circus troupes’ Daily Telegraph

‘A show with real attitude’ Guardian****
