Ellie Dubois : No Show

Dates: 4th to the 27th of August

Venue: Old Lab, Summerhall

New contemporary all-female circus from award winning director Ellie Dubois, last seen at Summerhall with Ringside in 2015. What do you expect when you go to the circus? The glitzy smiles, the glitter of sequins, the drum rolls as performers effortlessly perform death-defying acts? No Show joyously and heartbreakingly goes behind the flawless smiles and perfect execution to reveal the wobbles, the pain, and the real cost of aiming for perfection. There will be desperate attempts and heroic failures, glorious achievements and bruised bodies and egos. A show for anyone who has tried, failed and failed better.
