Tilted Circus Scratch: Digital Edition16 Feb — 30 Oct
In happier times, Jacksons Lane regularly hosts a night called Tilted Circus Scratch. These performances showcase the best work from up-and-coming circus artists. The Thursday 23 April 2020 performance of Tilted: Circus Scratch was cancelled due to the COVID-19 lockdown.
The artists decided to present their latest work anyway, submitting 30-second snippets of their pieces.
Jacksons Lane’s regular Tilted Circus Scratch showcases the circus world’s rising talents and accomplished veterans in a raw, energetic and dazzlingly fun scratch night.
Carys and Graham: TAPE THAT!
A simple roll of tape is stretched to create physical barriers and obstacles for the performers to navigate through. A playful exploration of the world we live in; in times of shifting opinions, breakdowns in communication and growing divisions in society, how do we navigate our differences with humanity and support?
David Sanchez: The Plastic Took Over
A man is in a plastic desert. Driven by juggling, physical theatre and a lot of plastic, this piece critiques an environmental issue from an ironic approach.
Tamzen Moulding: Touch
Life - in and out of balance, in contact with others, to catch us. How can our touch affect the balance of another’s path? Ensemble hand-balance.
Rosa Thorlby: Stim of the Rope
A shy creature is awash upon an ocean of noise and information. Then she finds a rope, and so begins the forging of a nest of calm; a tactile dialogue between rope and creature.
Lavrak: Green Machine
Two women balance on a fragile planet, boxing, bumping and battling with it – learning how to look after it. This frantic and friendly comment on global warming gives a positive, motivational message. Costumes and kit are second-hand or recycled.
Rebecca Rennison: Red
"Why do you want to dance? Why do you want to live? ... well I don't know exactly why... but I must." Exploring compulsion, obsession and movement with the element of a single, beautiful, high-heeled red shoe. A mix of dance, aerial and acrobatics with three performers.
