Description

This playful new aerial show from All or Nothing and Room 2 Manoeuvre delves into the world of superheroes and beyond! In their quirky circus universe, two performers (and their miniature sidekicks) explore what it means to be a hero. The dynamic duo tackle the darker side of life in the spotlight and the pressures of being a role model with a never-ending list of enemies. Are we blinded by celebrity? Or are the ordinary people living extraordinary lives our true heroes? Families assemble – don't miss this clever caper told through aerial dance theatre and contemporary circus.

Technically this is a very good piece of circus work, both are very good at the floor work and aerial work that Bev manages to do includes the comic timing of getting it wrong – just wrong enough to be good, and bad enough to realise the skill. It creates...

Broadway Baby (4/5 stars) 11 days ago

What a delight to hear the giggles and laughter, sometimes hysterical, of children, aged four and up in the audience throughout Heroes, a circus, acrobatics and aerial dance show about, what else, Superman and Superwoman whom our two protagonist/acrobats want to transform themselves into. This is also a charming story-line...

Heroes is a likeable hour of dance, aerial acrobatics and physical comedy that ultimately feels more like a compilation of loosely connected sketches than a coherent statement. ...
