To mark Cirque Bijou's 20th anniversary year, they present Korri Aulakh and Rob Lewis in 'Harmonic'. Blending mesmerising spinning trapeze with live and looped cello, 'Harmonic' was created in 2018 for Royal Botanic Gardens Kew to mark the opening of their new Temperate House.
A joyously fun static trapeze act by aerialist Tilly Lee Kronick. Moving her dancing from the floor to the air, Tilly loves to shake, wiggle and jump. This static trapeze act is full of bubbly joyous energy that is bound to put a smile on your face.
Ceilidh dance brings people together in a way, which breaks down the usual social barriers. Cultural background, age, gender…and yes, even sometimes men dance with men! ‘Pop up’ Ceilidhs like the dances we’ve previously held at the Harbour Festival only help to increase the diversity of the dancers, and for those not wanting, or not able to dance, it still provides a spectacle and a chance to see how a diverse group of people can come together and have fun.
Festival favourites will come together for this secret 360-degree performance and you’re invited to immerse yourself in the action by simply connecting virtually to take the very best seat in the house.
Featuring the super hooper, Angie Mack, bubbleologist, Bubblina, Hibiscus and Gladys, the giant three-toed pygmy sloths and jugglers Jacob Hi Ho & Ben Walker.
