Barely Methodical Troupe


Wednesday 16 - Sunday 27 May

This is a past event which has now ended.


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.

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

2021 offers hope for the creative sector, and as an arts charity, we are redoubling our efforts to share meaningful art and cultural experiences with people across Norfolk. We rely on support from our audiences, partners and supporters to continue to bring innovative and inspirational programming and commissioning to the region, and to empower those who might not otherwise have access to the life-changing power of the arts.
