Barely Methodical Troupe

Shift

Wednesday 16 - Sunday 27 May

This is a past event which has now ended.

WORLD PREMIERE

Enter a shifting, gravity-defying space where acrobats push against the edges of reality, stretching, challenging and testing the limits of collective physical endeavour.

Watch them fly, tumble and spin in moments of breath-taking acrobatics and performance. When you leave you will question if what you’ve just seen is possible or if it was a dream…

The UK’s ground-breaking circus company Barely Methodical Troupe bring their trade mark mix of exceptional physical prowess and punchy humour, with a brand new show that also features artists from Spain and Sweden.

Festival Futures – Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May festival and our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.
