Nacho Flores26 Jan — 28 Jan
After ten years as a highwire specialist, Nacho Flores puts his incredible balancing skills to the test in climbing fearsome stacks of teetering wooden cubes that rise like mountains and topple like dominoes.
The result of three years' research, Tesseract (in geometry a complex cubic form) combines circus, architecture, puppetry, video and live music through a surreal, witty and gravity-defying adventure in a shape-shifting landscape. With every action played out in precarious situations, the tension never slips.
Born in Madrid, Nacho Flores trained in theatre and circus in Amsterdam, honing his skills at the Moscow Circus School and at Le Lido in Toulouse. After working with various Big Top productions, he took time out to develop his own show, using new technology and bold new balancing techniques he created for himself. Tesseract, a CircusNext winner in 2014, is the highly acclaimed result.
There will be a post-show discussion after the performance on Sat 27 Jan.

"A moment of magic"
"Clownlike and christlike, the balancing clown flirts dangerously with the possibility of the final fall"
