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.
