Nikki & JD: Knot

Sorry, this event has sold out

Physically exhilarating, candid and poignant, this internationally acclaimed circus-dance show highlights the relationship knots we tie ourselves in. How can we be honest with ourselves without hurting those we love?

Featuring two acrobatic performers, Knot uses circus, dance and storytelling to examine love and conflict between two people seemingly in a relationship. However, there is a twist in the tale as the audience discovers all is not as it seems.

Knot is a finely crafted journey through the struggles of commitment, with a surprising sting in its tail. It uses superb hand to hand circus skills to tell the tale of an impossible choice and gives real insight into the performers’ feelings for each other. As they execute athletic lifts and balances, their voices share the romantic dreams, falsehoods and confusion that underpin their complex relationship.

Created in collaboration with choreographer Ben Duke from Lost Dog (‘Paradise Lost (lies unopened beside me)’, ‘Juliet & Romeo’), Knot is a very modern affair told with delicate sensitivity through breath-taking acrobatics and heart-wrenching dance.

Winners of a Herald Angel Award and the Total Theatre & Jacksons Lane Award for Circus at the Edinburgh Fringe 2019.
