Human – a story about the small moments that shape us.
This new live show by Extraordinary Bodies is a poetic record of our time. It is based on real life stories from the company and performers and told through circus, music and film. Intimate, funny and celebratory, Human looks into the heart of birth, love and change. It reminds us that as humans, we have the extraordinary ability to move forward together by taking the time to really understand each other.
At a time when the world’s been cracked open, we invite you to spend an hour with us, imagining how we can make sure no one is left behind.
Human is BSL interpreted, captioned and audio described. All performances are relaxed.
Extraordinary Bodies is a radical circus performance company. Our shows are a bold mix of circus, dance, theatre and live music. We spotlight real life stories that matter.
