This is a rare and affordable treat, a preview video of the surreal ballet/theatre/circus deservedly went somewhat viral and buzz has built around it ever since. Thiérrée, the show’s creator can trace his performance gene right back to Chaplin, via his circus performer parents, and he’s used his lifetime of experience to full effect with a meticulous six month set construction fully realising the floating structure above the stage and its dream-like world with mechanical creatures and water feature. A three month rehearsal period perfected the contortions, acrobatics and magic of this twisted reality to send the performance stratospheric. This spectacle is gracing the stage at Sadler’s Wells for five short nights before disappearing back to dreamland.
