Communities & Audiences


Our shows bring people together through a collective experience.

We love to involve communities in the creation of the work to make the experience all the more memorable for everyone involved. Whether that's local residents or groups, schools, audiences or festival goers, there are many meaningful ways to bring people into the action.

We create choirs, interactive light and fire installations, mass dance performances, processions and parades - or work with people to help us with the creation of certain show elements, like set, props and costume.


The Umbrella Project brings together local communities who create choreography using our LED Umbrellas. The project is accessible and adaptable, and whether participants have experience or no experience, are young or old, disabled or non-disabled, we will work with them to create something glowingly beautiful.

Kitchen Circus Project, in collaboration with Knowle West Media Centre, works closely with the local community in each place we visit. We search for their stories and bring them out in to the gardens, streets and alleyways, via a series of intimate journeys and pop up shows told by circus performers, musicians and digital artists and the communities themselves.

Umbrella raves in churches, glitter bombs, singing, dancing, meeting new people, and of course the performance! I wish I could do it again!
