CHAT WITH STUMBLE ABOUT HORRIBLES. WEEKLY SUBJECT FOR SIX WEEKS UP TO XMAS (or thereabouts, who is counting?) This week (second week)
- What is shame? how much of it is ‘normal’ to live with? chat via twitter or facebook – links to Stumble profiles on this site.
Circus brought to you with a sculptor’s eye, with a keen ear for beautiful music and a strong sense of the individual’s tale.
Stumble danceCircus works with choreography of circus techniques to produce work with humanity and integrity.
In 2013 (for 2014) we are researching our new project Parade of Horribles - a Circus procession of sculptural forms which will aim to trigger conversation about those very things that we would rather not talk about.
In 2011/12 Stumble produced Box of Frogs ‘The Greatest show on Earth and the worst show you have ever seen.’
@stumbledc @Carriagewrx Brilliant show! So insightful. Incredibly skilled performances &observations. Thought provoking. Congratulations!
My life’s just been made better by witnessing box of frogs by @stumbledc @arcstockton #nothinglikeit
A mind blowing evening of #circus from @stumbledc with #boxoffrogs Absolutely. Definitely. 100%. Brilliant.
In 2010 we previewed a developmental performance, a one-man show called Bipolar Ringmaster (without a Circus).
I have never seen anything like it before. Quirky, individual, unique.
Keep doing what you’re doing.
Our first outing (2008) was a cabaret of unstable solos entitled An Evening of Instability, which drew on some of the best new Circus talent in Britain and the experience and flair of some of the strongest aerial and acrobatic names on the Contemporary circuit.
Unusual idea to interrogate balance…that hook replaced the notion of a narrative in a satisfying way for me, and I watched the various interludes almost like I view sculpture – as shapes in space – but with an overarching struggle between balance and falling over adding tension. And I found it intriguing and captivating.
Brave, honest and organic, Stumble is proud to be Circus.
