Bamboo Circus R&D is a collaboration between Imagineer, Orit Azaz and NoFit State Circus

BAMBOO (working title) is a new collaboration between Imagineer, Orit Azaz ​​​​​​and NoFit State Circus.

The project is developing towards a new spectacular, high-impact, high-skill outdoor circus production using only UK-grown bamboo and human bodies - revealing the fragility and beauty of our interconnected and interdependent life on this planet. From just a pile of sticks into an amorphous, ever-evolving sculptural landscape animated by exceptional circus bodies, this show will have a simplicity with massive impact and spectacle, and be easily toured. 

We hope this project will be available for touring for summer 2024. For more information and enquiries, please contact Dann.

The Bamboo Circus R&D enquiry has been part of the #ImagineBamboo Is Everywhere 2023 creative enquiry.
