Acéléré by Circolombia (Circolombia in association with Underbelly)

By | Published on Thursday 17 August 2017

Oh holy moly, this is circus to take your breath away! Reminiscent of Cirque Alphonse’s outstanding ‘Barbu’, Circolombia’s drama and attitude build an electric atmosphere that stuns the crowd with urban beats and contemporary acrobatics. A combination of singing, dancing and absolutely heart-stopping circus stunts, ‘Acéléré’ is a gritty, sexy show. Straight out of Bogotá, they are here to astonish with their swagger and apparent lack of fear. With a 13-strong troupe, at times it feels utterly frenzied as they leap through the air and swirl around the stage, while balancing acts that will absolutely blow your mind are achieved with incredible agility. This really is one not to be missed.

Underbelly’s Circus Hub on The Meadows, until 26 Aug.
