Having premiered to acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival in 2014, where it won the Total Theatre and Jackson’s Lane Awards for Best Circus, BROMANCE went on to sell-out national and international tours. It returns for just seven UK performances at The Albany prior to opening in New York early next year. The show explores male companionship and its limits through humour, exceptional parkour skills, hand-to-hand acrobatics, Bboying, tricking, Cyr wheel and more. It runs from Wednesday 6 to Wednesday 13 December 2017.
Following that, BMT & Friends is a breathtaking and beautiful all circus cabaret, curated by Barely Methodical Troupe and featuring some of their most ridiculously talented friends, including Belgian’s Bert and Fred who like to play with knives, Emi Vauthey and her fabulous hoops plus Chris Thomas, Dan and Rhi Cave-Walker and Fiona Thornhill. The cabaret runs from Wednesday 6 to Wednesday 13 December 2017.
Barely Methodical Troupe met at the National Centre for Circus Arts when they found their diverse mix of skills offered them a unique chemistry: Louis Gift started in parkour, Beren D’Amico in martial arts tricking and Charlie Wheeller was a breakdancer. On graduation, they won the inaugural Circus Maximus competition and the Deutsche Bank Award, which enabled them to create BROMANCE and they’ve gone on to win multiple awards and widespread acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe, London Mime Festival and internationally.
Barely Methodical Troupe’s BROMANCE runs 6 to 13 December 2017, while BMT & Friends with performances at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced £18 (early bird £14), with £23 premium tickets also including a glass of fizz and nibbles on arrival.
