Not so far away, company Lost in Translation transform a former parish church in the centre of Norwich into Oak Circus Centre, and Upswing launch the two-year strategic touring project Building Stories Pushing Boundaries to boost audiences in the Midlands. In London, young company Barely Methodical Troupe remain ascendant, headlining the Roundhouse’s CircusFest with Kin (only their second production), and the dictum that circus is everywhere is underscored by Depart, a new Circa show that takes place in Tower Hamlets Cemetery. On the international level, James Thierrée plays the prestigious Edinburgh International Festival with The Toad Knew, and Circostrada hosts its AGM in the UK for the first time, courtesy of Greenwich+Docklands Festival.
