We’ve been to the circus 🎪🎪
What a lovely way to spend the afternoon yesterday, with all the crew from @zipposcircus keeping the little one amused and in awe of their skills in the ring. .
🤹🏻♂️Aria’s favourite part of the show had to be Norman Barret MBE and his birdies skilful budgies! .
Zippos are celebrating 250 of the circus too this year! You really can feel the excitement and passion all the performers have during the show. .
🤡Zippos are in Sheffield for two more shows; one this this afternoon at 3pm then the finale tomorrow so get yourself down there speedy!! #zipposcircus#zippos#normanbarrett#circus250#sheffield#thingstodoinsheffield#endcliffepark
This weekend we performed #WhatAmIWorth by #ExtraordinaryBodies to wonderful audiences on London’s #Southbank as part of @nationaltheatre #Riverstage presented in partnership with @southwarkcouncil and working with @nationalyouththeatre
Extraordinary Bodies is a partnership between #CirqueBijou and @diverse_city1. These shoes were a culmination of a 4 date tour, a 2 year #acefunded project and an incredible journey that took us to @circusoz in Melbourne and to 10 locations across the U.K. and Ireland, from @carlow_arts_festival to @merchantcityglasgow and with the support of so many generous partners, friends and allies in between.
We will tour again next year.

Some more behind the scenes pictures of day 2 of filming #QUIMERA - The day had some funny moments like building a fake wall for Quimera’s house and walking it across #TelegraphHill 😅 but also some really magical moments... Was a pleasure to work with @jw_cinematographer and @themdcollective We are so happy to have them as part of the team. Then the awesome performance of Sarah @dowling5713 well, there are no words. For those of you who have seen her perform, you know what I mean. For those of you who haven’t, you must! Film will be ready in September. Can’t wait to see how @omarimotion edits it. Mega thanks to @terratrouve for being there for all the logistics and to Jaquie for lending us her house. Now back to the theatre version!
