“A circus experience for the Zuckerberg generation” – The Circus Diaries
Beta_Testing is part performance lecture- part juggling show; a hotchpotch remix of juggling subculture and influences such as TED talks, The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy and a fear of the haddock.
Circus Geeks began life as a blog- and Beta Testing has grown out of some of the blog’s most popular posts, which have international interest in a niche corner of the internet. The cast of 3 trawl through the archives to find the most absurd bits and share them you.
“In a slick, tightly packed hour, ‘Beta Testing’ charmingly deconstructs the noble art of throwing and catching, helped along the way by some seriously impressive tricks.” – Time Out
“The audience – throughout the performance clapping and cheering in a way not usually expressed in a theatre during a show – erupt into applause.” Exeunt Magazine
“It is not every day you see a juggler being slapped around the face with a wet haddock- but then Circus Geeks is not your average juggling act.” Evening Standard
