Contra by Laura Murphy tickets
Starting this week Bristol will transform itself into Circus City through a daring programme of forward-thinking performances fusing circus, theatre, cinema and performance art. As this year's shows begin to sell out, we recommend exploring the full festival programme (over 40 breath-taking events) while you can: bristolcircuscity.com/whats-on/ Here's our picks of the acrobatic delights: -------------------------------------- CONTRA BY LAURA MURPHY Scenes of nudity combine with aerial acrobatics and live art (a world first?) for a whole new species of solo-cabaret performance. 🎫 Tickets: hdfst.uk/E55941 -------------------------------------- BALANTINE SCALE A distinguished world premiere of Finnish physical innovation and breathtaking musical scores from Jäntti&Venna - see it in St Philips before it hits Helsinki! 🎫 Tickets: hdfst.uk/ballan -------------------------------------- THIS TIME Ockham's Razor draw on a cast of performers spanning three generations to explore the vulnerabilities that come with age and aging - this is visual theatre at it's most emotional. 🎫 Tickets: hdfst.uk/this-time-by-ockham-s-razor -------------------------------------- LITTLE LAVRAK Family friendly gymnastic adventures in an oversized kitchen (with the promise of free cookies too) Little Lavrak, is this the ultimate half term treat? 🎫 Tickets: hdfst.uk/reach---little-lavrak -------------------------------------- BROMANCE International accolades abound for this modern tale of masculine friendship told through a unique combination of parkour, Cyr wheel, banquine and b-boying! 🎫 Tickets: hdfst.uk/bromance-by-barely-methodical-troupe Arnolfini, Trinity Centre, Circomedia and 1532 Performing Arts Centre, The Wardrobe Theatre
Teachings in Dub tickets
After a near-religious Teachings in Dub session last year, vanguards of that Leeds sound Iration Steppas Official return triumphant to Trinity Centre to rattle bones and minds with the heaviest subs to come outta the 90s. Macky Banton's on the mic this time, he'll be calling for Indica Dubs all night in a huge clash in the original fashion (as the eye-popping poster graphics suggests). The London based system will have their work cut out, whoever wins - the crowd decides. 🎫 Final Release Tickets: hdfst.uk/E57223
What does the future of Bristol's cultural spaces look like? With FUTUR VILLE Summit, Artspace Lifespace host a weekend of discussion, performance and workshops to mobilize and self-organise against insensitive urban development and negative cultural policies. Ashton Court Estate (now part 'repurposed' as Arts Mansion) is a fitting setting to shape these alternative horizons with speakers from Trinity Centre, UWE Bristol Urban Planning, Visual Arts South West, Kiki Bristol as well as friendly developers and members of the local cabinet. Shake off any excessive thinking at the immersive theatrical afterparty hosted by Alfresco Disco and Minirigs. 🎫 Tickets (talks): hdfst.uk/E56936 🎫 Tickets (afterparty): hdfst.uk/E56935
