Britain’s hottest circus company celebrates group dynamics and camaraderie in this 5 star hit.

We are delighted to announce that tonight’s performance of KIN will go ahead as planned.

Six sensational acrobats deftly deploy their physical prowess where tumbling, flying and flipping become challenges and opportunities in individual bids for recognition.

KIN premiered in 2016 to rave reviews and standing ovations. Don’t miss the chance to see this thrilling show in a re-staged production dripping with deadpan humour, disarming emotion and jaw-dropping acrobatics. Barely Methodical Troupe is at the forefront of a new kind of physical performance, creating highly entertaining productions that mix the show-stopping acrobatics of circus with the emotional punch of theatre.

The director is distinguished choreographer Ben Duke, Olivier Award nominee, and co-founder/director of Lost Dog.
