AIREALISM: ‘THE BLEEDING HEARTS CIRCUS’
Circus company Airealism will be taking audiences on an aerial adventure when they appear at London’s Hoxton Hall on May 30, May 31 and June 1, 2013 with The Bleeding Hearts Circus, an intimate cabaret dedicated to love in all it’s many forms.
As with all affairs of the heart, there will be displays of raw twisted passions, soaring highs and crushingly heartbreaking lows as performers take a heady journey along the well-trodden path of romance. Stories will unfold on the ground and high up in the air on trapezes, silks, corde lisses, aerial hoops and on the muscular backs of others.
Airealism have been successful in capturing the public’s attention with their creative and imaginative performances, which have seen them play to packed audiences at The Albany theatre, Glastonbury Festival, Edinburgh Fringe, Shunt nightclub and Hoxton Hall.
Previous performances, which include ‘Sand and Steam’, ‘Tales of the Apocalypse’ and aerial theatrical piece ‘Noir’, have received rave reviews:“Fluid and engaging” (Sideshow Magazine), “Unfeigned avant-gardism” (Time Out) and “Noir simply and quite magically distils one art form into another” (The Guardian).
Since it’s birth seven years ago, Airealism has grown to become a fully-fledged circus company – unlike any other. Their uniqueness stems from the fact that they are comprised of dynamic new breeds of circus performers who have managed to run away with the circus, whilst continuing to hold down full-time jobs as lawyers, dentists, decorators and engineers.
This 20-person strong band of vibrant artists, encompass all manner of performance skills including aerial arts, acrobalancing, contortion, roller-skating and aerial and physical theatre. With their diverse backgrounds, age ranges and hard earned abilities, Airealism continue to inspire audiences throughout the UK .
