The Hogwallops (Lost In Translation Circus)

The Hogwallops

Lost In Translation Circus presents a birthday-themed spectacle that combines traditional circus, theatre and comedy. Following the dysfunctional Hogwallop family, this is a captivating, high-energy show, demonstrating remarkable imagination alongside physical strength. Mixing floor and aerial acrobatics, and backed by a live score, the group bring to life everyday activities, such as laundry and baking, to deliver a fun and quirky story. Heavily laced with slapstick, expect a top-secret box, bananas, cake and even aerial work on a Zimmer frame! Despite a predominantly adult audience on the day I was there, this is a great show for the whole family. Brilliantly silly yet technically impressive, ‘The Hogwallops’ is an enchanting and exciting display of dexterity and humour.

Underbelly’s Circus Hub On The Meadows, until 29 Aug.
