Barbaren Barbies: A Wild Women Circus

Dance Physical Theatre and Circus

Barbaren Barbies: A Wild Women Circus

Witty, touching, hilarious and unapologetic. Watch these barbarians smash together incredible acrobatics, dance and comedy with delightfully shocking silliness. Five ridiculous superheroines playfully tease stereotypes and tackle the complexity of womanhood. It's as if the underground Berlin circus scene had a beautiful love child with a Vegas Spice Girl. Bursting onto the Berlin scene in 2022, the Barbaren Barbies have successfully toured throughout Germany, Austria and Poland. This international company is now ready to shake up the Fringe.

Compagnia Baccalà: OH OH

After the stunning success of PSS PSS, the multi-award-winning Compagnia Baccalà returns to the Fringe with OH OH! This new show is firmly placed in the history of clowning, harkening back to such figures as Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and Fellini. OH OH is a wordless performance, a joyful combination of acrobatics, humour, and slapstick. It is a slice in the life of a double act, an absurd pas-de-deux, an encounter between clowning circus and physical theatre at its best. 'A marvel.' (LeFigaro.fr). 'A triumphant return.' (LaRegione.ch).

Circa: Humans 2.0

Dance Physical Theatre and Circus

Circa: Humans 2.0

Ten bodies appear in a flash of light. They move in harmony for a fleeting moment, then descend into a sinuous trance. Towers grow and decay, bodies leap and are caught, physical limits are pushed to their extreme. The second chapter of Circa’s internationally acclaimed Humans is a symphony of acrobatics, sound and light. This is next level circus by Circa. ‘Everything in Humans 2.0 is flawless’ ★★★★★ (Scotsman) ★★★★★ (List) ★★★★★ (BroadwayBaby.com) Created by circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz and pulsing with music by composer Ori Lichtik.
