High Point Village, Station Road, Hayes UB3 4FE

Wednesday 4 July 2018

2.30pm & 6.30pm

BLOCK is a powerful fusion of dance and circus that pushes the limits of both art forms. With its daring physicality, split-second timing and thrilling feats, BLOCK leaves audiences gasping.

What happens when dance and circus collide? When they converge, rub against each other, blend into one another?

Twenty over-sized blocks are deconstructed and reformed into an infinite variety of shapes for the performers to play on, move with and explore.  BLOCK is about life in the city; its contradictions and challenges.

Using their trademark mix of digital projections, live painting and performance, Insectotropics presents The Legend of the Burning Man, which tells the story of Mohammed Bouazizi, who sparked the Arab Spring when he set himself on fire in protest at the authorities in Tunisia.  The show examines the spread of news across the internet, how social media offers partial and self-interested perspectives, and how public opinion and feelings are manipulated. Who controls what we believe?

The Legend of the Burning Man is a poetic journey, based on real events, created to answer a big question of our time: If we are all on the web, who is the spider?

Lance Moi En l'Air is about the sensitivity and connection between two people which brings about compatible contradictions.

Can we be strong whilst relaxed? Heavy whilst light, grounded whilst levitated, submissive whilst in control, a mixture of strength and weakness, Can we be dropped into the air?

Humanity emerges and and acrobatic prowess speaks between bodies. In a mixture of abandonment and accountability this piece is sensitive, where bodies just fit together.

Ockham's Razor presents Belly of the Whale

     

  

Giffin Square, Deptford, London, SE8 4RJ

Saturday 11 August 2018

12pm & 3pm

Circulate Resident Artists Ockham’s Razor present their exciting first show made specifically for outdoors.

The performers, like surfers on a wild sea, ride a giant semi-circular see-saw made of wood and steel which creaks and groans as it transforms from a catapult, a gently rocking cradle, a tunnel, a slide - creating an ever-changing land and soundscape. 

The concept of the belly of the whale is found in mythology around the world - what happens when we confront our fears and come face to face with the power and momentum of things we seemingly can’t change? 

"there's something magical about Ockham's Razor" Evening Standard

“Britain’s most innovative aerial theatre group” Total Theatre 

“Ockham's Razor is a hugely promising young aerial company who don't just have superb circus skills, but also highly creative brains.” The Guardian 

Ockham’s Razor are supported by Arts Council England.
Belly of the Whale is commissioned by Without Walls, Stockton International Riverside Festival, Greenwich + Docklands International Festival, Out There International Festival of Circus & Street Arts, Norfolk & Norwich Festival, Salisbury International Arts Festival, Circulate and Stratford Circus Arts Centre.

1pm & 4pm

D-Construction is a very fun and energetic hip-hop dance performance with an infectious beat.

In the middle of the space a huge and striking metal structure creates a playground, prison and place of expression. It protects and exposes. It holds and releases at the same time. It is a place of confrontation and inspiration. It connects, inspires and destroys to create something new.

Six dancers experience the liberation of the mind through movement. Merging into a group, they create a stronger entity; breaking apart, they assert their uniqueness. They interact with the metal scaffolding as it cages, protects and frees them at the very same time.

Join us for a moment of quiet celebration and witness your local shopping street transformed into a sea of blank placards as individuals march anonymously in support of their own causes and personal crusades. Centered around unity, censorship and togetherness, Silencer provides a platform which will enable everyone to have a voice and tell their stories or the stories of their friends and loved ones. The final installation will reveal the many contributed campaign slogans and stories.

Part performance, part exhibition, the aim of this project is to raise awareness of the political, cultural and individual challenges faced by local people living and working in your area, giving a voice to the many unsung heroes who have helped shape it.  Silencer is a deliberate act to create something outwardly positive and to share our histories, aspirations and optimism for a better future.

We have seen a lot of people recently on marches across London, for many different reasons.  If you were going to march to tell the world about something…what would it be?

To participate and donate your personal crusade in advance keep an eye on Silencer's Facebook page for workshop opportunities or submit yours anonymously in advance of the collective march.

Saturday 23 September 2017

7:30pm & 9:15pm

A CIRCULATE AUDIENCE DEVELOPMENT EVENT.

A House is not a Home is specifically designed to be played in a non-theatrical space, in a little house structure placed in isolation in an outdoor public space. The plot is simple: two people observe the interior of a house from the garden. They have to share some bad news with the residents, but the image of apparent happiness in the interior will make it hard to achieve this goal.

The audience listen in on the action through headphones, transforming them from spectators into active witnesses to an unfolding situation. The observers may feel the isolation of the house as they are able to spy on the lives of its residents. A single word can disrupt the order of events and transform a peaceful home into an inhospitable place.

Part performance, part exhibition, the aim of this project is to raise awareness of the political, cultural and individual challenges faced by local people living and working in your area, giving a voice to the many unsung heroes who have helped shape it.  Silencer is a deliberate act to create something outwardly positive and to share our histories, aspirations and optimism for a better future.

We have seen a lot of people recently on marches across London, for many different reasons.  If you were going to march to tell the world about something…what would it be?

To participate and donate your personal crusade in advance keep an eye on Silencer's Facebook page for workshop opportunities or submit yours anonymously in advance of the collective march.

Saturday 12 August 2017

4pm-6:30pm

Silencer is a silent march formed by you, your friends, colleagues, family and neighbours resulting in an art installation built in the heart of your community.

Join us for a moment of quiet celebration and witness your local shopping street transformed into a sea of blank placards as individuals march anonymously in support of their own causes and personal crusades. Centered around unity, censorship and togetherness, Silencer provides a platform which will enable everyone to have a voice and tell their stories or the stories of their friends and loved ones. The final installation will reveal the many contributed campaign slogans and stories.

Part performance, part exhibition, the aim of this project is to raise awareness of the political, cultural and individual challenges faced by local people living and working in your area, giving a voice to the many unsung heroes who have helped shape it.  Silencer is a deliberate act to create something outwardly positive and to share our histories, aspirations and optimism for a better future.

Back by popular demand! 
Life Boat proved to be a summer 2016 favourite for Circulate, appearing at each of the network locations and our Satellite locations, too.  We are so excited to see it return at our new Satellite Location, Fairlop Fair

A participatory installation... Rock gently, turn slowly, listen to the alphabet... Bang the drum, rattle the chain, rock the boat... File your Forecast for the Future.

The Life Boat voyage has taken in over 70 locations around the UK and seen over 10000 participants through the hammocks. Hundreds across London found an antidote to the hustle and bustle of the city on The Slowest Ride on Earth.
