Le Cirque Imaginaire

The first London appearance of the famous Chaplin-Thiérrée family, Cirque Imaginaire (pictured) presents a new circus of dream-like transformations where objects animate and costumes unfold through a series of living designs. The irrepressible Jean-Baptiste delivers quick-fire jokes, while Victoria Chaplin walks the wire and manipulates her costume-creations with a singular and mysterious grace. Their young son James and daughter Aurelia Thiérrée both enjoy walk-on parts disguised as pieces of luggage. Many years later they will return to London with their own creations. The Cirque Imaginaire will also revisit the city in later life, reborn as the Cirque Invisible.
