The Oak Circus Centre in central Norwich will be presenting three performances of their Dickens themed cabaret for all ages, A Christmas Circus Carol, on Friday 15, Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 December.
Inspired by Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, the show will give both children and adults from The Oaks’ popular circus courses the unique opportunity to perform alongside seasoned professionals from the Norwich based multinational Lost in Translation Circus company. It will also give a taster of the sort of skills people of all ages can learn at The Oak throughout the year.
Lost in Translation are rapidly becoming established as one of the country’s leading and best-loved contemporary circus companies for their trademark warm humour combined with heart-stoppingly virtuosic skilful aerial and floor acrobatics.
The professional performers will include Co-Director Massimiliano Rossetti and core artist Roisin Morris who are the Guinness World Record holders for most somersaults on a Korean Cradle in one minute. The company has toured widely throughout the UK and Europe and enjoyed repeat audience and critical success at the Edinburgh Festival. www.lostintranslationcircus.com
Friday night will see performances from The Oak’s growing community of adult students followed by our professional LiT Circus tutors.
Saturday night will showcase performances from the smallest circus enthusiasts from The Oak Youth Circus programme, adult students as well as a performance from LiT Circus.
Sunday will feature young students from Norwich’s Central School of Dance alongside a performance from LiT Circus tutors.
