Barely Methodical Troupe

Last year’s winner of the UK’s first circus competition, Circus Maximus, Barely Methodical Troupe are a trio of dynamic, young acrobats and dancers. With their dazzling physical prowess and street acrobatic credentials, they are one of the UK’s hottest new circus ensembles.

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.


  • 'A jaw-dropping magnificent show.'

    The Stage

  • ‘The sincerity and passion of these guys for their art is palpable. It’s a definite re-book with friends for me and five stars with a muscular flourish. Great show!’

    Edinburgh Guide

  • ‘As an inaugural effort, Bromance has a freshness and appeal that bodes well for their collective future.’

    The List

  • 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.
