Beta Testing premiered at The Roundhouse, London this Apri, to sell out audiences and fantastic reviews. The show is available to book in Feb-March 2015.
Beta testing will entertain everyone who wants a humourous insight into the lives of jugglers, and would like to see this illusive species in their natural habitat. Appealing to teenagers and adults alike, the show will be particularly suited to arts centres and universities, due to it’s lighthearted, yet educational nature.
With no rigging required for this performance, it also great for rural-venues. Beta Testing is particularly suited to intimate spaces, where the performers are so close, the audience can even smell them.
In the show, a salmon and a rainbow trout are used as props. In small-scale or rural venues with easy access to a kitchen, we would love to invite our audience to share the spoils! Immediately after the show, we will bake the fish, which will be ready shortly after an interval and a post-show Q&A.
We would love to work with local secondary schools or groups, to introduce them to circus, ahead of the show’s arrival. We can offer workshops and a talk to up 3 groups, on a suitable date ahead of Beta Testing’s performance in your venue. Please contact us for more information.
Juggling workshops can cater for absolute beginners, or for existing juggling groups who already have an advanced level. Workshops vary from 40 minutes to 2 hours, dependant on experience, and can accommodate up to 20 participants.
Circus Geeks can also offer talk in a range of subjects which can tie in with GCSE and A-level subjects, such as mathematics, business management, performing arts, drama & psychology. Topics of our talks include:
- The Business of Being a Performer
- The Notation & Numeracy of Juggling
- The History of Circus
