  • About

    Barely Methodical Troupe (BMT) is an experimental acrobatic circus company, fusing hand-to-hand and Cyr  wheel with a through line of creative dynamic movement. The artists came to circus, each having trained independently in their respective fields, with a thirst for breaking boundaries. Influenced by their already existing skill sets (parkour, Bboying, and tricking), they have a fresh perspective on the creation of their material. This combination of technical ability with their stylish flow is the defining feature of the troupe. Bromance  is their first show as a company, each of the artists are involved in other dance and circus projects.

Barely Methodical Troupe

Bromance –  Noun (informal):  A close but non-sexual relationship between men.  Early 21st cent: blend of brother and romance.

Bromance  walks the line between pugnacious and poignant in a hilarious, jaw-dropping celebration of everything blokey. It’s a show where handshakes become handstands and back-slaps become back-flips.

Bromance  premiered in 2014 at Underbelly, Edinburgh Fringe where it won a Total Theatre Award.
