Part of CircusFest 2018

World premiere

A brand-new mechanically-ingenious family-friendly circus show from the makers of FLOWN.

Adventure into a world of mechanical chaos, where everything has a mind of its own and connections appear in unexpected ways. As contraptions, fixtures and fittings come to life, our heroes begin to question their place in it all.

Exhilaratingly anarchic, with an inventive, interconnected set and original live score, Relentless Unstoppable Human Machine (RUHM) delves bravely into the fantastical imaginations of two fated acrobats.

Featuring vertical-swinging trapeze, never-ending ropes, a spinning carousel, high-wire and a very temperamental staircase, RUHM offers up a playful, humorous modernist parable about time, technology and the forces that drive us.

Developed in association with Roundhouse (London) with support from Pontio (Bangor) Ffwrnes (Llanelli). Funded by Arts Council England and Arts Council of Wales.

Roundhouse turned my world around. It’s a really special place and I wouldn’t be where I am now without it.
