London's Circus Space



Seminal French company Cirque Plume pitch their tent on Highbury Fields to perform the whimsical Toiles as part of the London International Festival of Theatre. To coincide with the visit, LIFT also work with Circus Space (pictured) to create Cirk Uzay, The Celestial Circus (‘the greatest show in the universe’), made in collaboration with school students from Hackney and Islington. Again in 1997 LIFT are instrumental in exposing UK audiences to the best of French contemporary circus when they programme the strange, shamanistic Johann Le Guillerm with his Cirque Ici.
