Crying Out Loud and Circomedia present, in collaboration with and supported by Flemish organisation Circuscentrum, Grasshoppers  from Circus Katoen at Bristol’s Circomedia on 25 October.

Grasshoppers  is an ode to nature with stunning acrobatics, watch as you discover the real star of the show. A piece of turf.

A creation full of humour and energy, Circus Katoen will make nature more alive than it already is, representing the resilience and vulnerability of nature and the role that we as humans play in it. Follow the artists as they transform the grass into an object that is mobilised, manipulated and controlled. Circus Katoen hope that the show will inspire kindness towards nature in future generations. Grasshoppers  is a show for children, but can be enjoyed by all the family!

Important Considerations: Grasshoppers  is great for groups, parties and extended families. However please note that the show lasts for 50 minutes with no interval. We think it is most suitable for anyone aged 8 years and over.
