Peepshow is more adult, a shade darker than other productions that I’ve seen before but without losing the overall Circa feel. Atmospheric and exciting, with all the technical prowess expected, this feels like a strong addition to the Circa canon.
Overall Peepshow is a thoroughly entertaining, often spectacular piece, just subversive enough and featuring a truly impressive cast of performers, who just leave you just enough time at the end to pick your jaw up off the floor on your way out.
There’s a reason Circa is known as the rockstars of the circus world; the company certainly knows how to put on a great show that thrills and entertains.
There is no denying that Circa’s Peepshow is a playful and cheeky show that captures the performers’ talents well – but does it all become slightly tired?
Performer David Trappes spoke to Love London Love Culture’s Emma Clarendon about appearing in Circa’s Peepshow playing as part of the Underbelly Festival.
