DANCE CIRCUS THURSDAY 12 APRIL 7.30PM
Presented by Alula Cyr

“She is the one who turns like a great wheel. She is the maker of cycles. She is the one we leave home for and come home to. She is the mucky root of all women.”
At a time when more and more people find themselves having to leave their own lands, the concepts of ‘home’ and ‘belonging’ have become unsettlingly absent to millions across the world. Inspired by global migration, TEN is centred around the relationship between two brothers.

SATURDAY 3 MARCH 7.30PM
The first all-female Cyr troupe, Alula’s debut HYENA explodes onto the UK circus scene in a whirlwind of women, wheels, acrobatics and song. Boisterous and wild, HYENA is a synchronised display of sisterhood, strength and power. Fiona, Jess and Lil trained in gymnastics, dance and music before studying together for three years at the National Centre for Circus Arts in London and graduated in 2015 with a combined mission to bring more female-centric circus to the UK.
TICKETS: £12 (£10) Supported by Arts Council England and Jacksons Lane, produced by Alula Cyr.
Full of intense physical power and very human fragility, TEN explores the concepts of ‘moving away’, looking at how and why people choose unimagined destinies over the lives they always thought they would live. ACE Dance and Music continues its relationship with choreographer José Agudo, combining contemporary dance with an essence of Flamenco, Kathak and ACE’s own Afro-fusion style, TEN is a visceral and exhilarating dance production.
TICKETS: £12 (£10) Supported by Arts Council England.
