Transferred from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for one night only, Knot is the internationally acclaimed circus and dance work by Nikki and JD.

Physically exhilarating and touchingly poignant, Knot uses hand-to-hand circus skills tell the tale of an impossible choice: how can we be honest with ourselves without hurting those we love?

A finely crafted theatrical journey through the struggles of commitment, Knot is fresh from a run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where it received the Total Theatre Award for Best Circus and a Herald Angel, and was shortlisted for the Carol Tambor Best of Edinburgh Award.

Created in collaboration with award-winning choreographer Ben Duke of Lost Dog Dance Company, this very modern affair is told with delicate sensitivity through breathtaking acrobatics and heart-wrenching dance.
