A Circus Affair (Circosis)

By | Published on Saturday 10 August 2013

Mr Kiko and Sarita are each pursuing their dream of a life in the circus. They bump into each other along the way, literally, and this chance meeting sparks the birth of a double act, a marriage and babies. The narrative, flimsy to begin with, rapidly peters out to non-existent. This could be forgiven if the circus tricks that replaced it were impressive, but Andrew Cook and Sarah Mason don’t make them look easy. There were a lot of mistakes, and people in the front row seemed to get frequently hit by things. The real problem here is that in trying to appeal to adults and children alike, ‘A Circus Affair’ actually makes itself unappealing to all ages.

Zoo, until 10 Aug, 7.00pm.
