Barbaren Barbies: A Wild Women Circus

Witty, touching, hilarious and unapologetic. Watch these barbarians smash together incredible acrobatics, dance and comedy with delightfully shocking silliness. Five ridiculous superheroines playfully tease stereotypes and tackle the complexity of womanhood. It's as if the underground Berlin circus scene had a beautiful love child with a Vegas Spice Girl. Bursting onto the Berlin scene in 2022, the Barbaren Barbies have successfully toured throughout Germany, Austria and Poland. This international company is now ready to shake up the Fringe.

Compagnia Baccalà: OH OH

Hilarious, tender, and ingenious, inspired by Chaplin, Keaton and the stars of silent films, Baccalà’s timeless performance of enthralling physicality and exquisite expression has been delighting audiences the world-over since 2010.  Inventive, exciting and ridiculous, this breathtaking array of mishaps and acrobatics will have you laughing long after you leave the theatre. OH OH's wordless performance displays a joyful combination of acrobatics, humour, and slapstick. A slice in the life of a double act, an absurd pas-de-deux and an encounter between clowning circus and physical theatre at its best.

Circa: Humans 2.0

A symphony of acrobatics, sound, and light, this is next-level circus by Circa.  Ten bodies appear in a flash of light. They move in harmony for a fleeting moment and then descend into a sinuous trance. Towers grow and decay, bodies leap and are caught, as physical limits are pushed to their extreme. Can we ever find a perfect balance or is adapting to constant change the only way forward?  A tightly woven choreography of bodies, pulsing with music, Humans 2.0 is intimate, primal, and deeply engaged with the challenge of being human.  ‘Everything in Humans 2.0 is flawless’ ★★★★★ (Scotsman) ★★★★★ (List) ★★★★★ ( Created by circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz and pulsing with music by composer Ori Lichtik.
