The Circus Pod

Director: Ben Pettitt-Wade
Circus Skills: Lynn Carroll, No Fit State Circus
Designer: Mary Drummond
Original Performers: Simone Ali, Luke Adams, Leonie Delgado, Rachel Cook, Martin Vick, Gareth Clark, Andrew Tadd, Louise Edgar

The Circus Pod was created in collaboration with No Fit State Circus. Performers went through 10 weeks of weekly circus skills training sessions while creating the performance, which features, acro-balance, death defying poi action and a giant multi-coloured parachute.

The Pod lasted around 30 minutes and was a fantastic show for young audiences. Since its inception in 2009 we have performed this piece at Unity Festival, Maindee Festival in Newport, Blysh Festival and inside the Welsh Assembly.
