The world premiere of the mechanically-ingenious, evocative new circus show from the makers of FLOWN.

Exhilarating and funny in equal measure, with an animated set and absorbing live score, Relentless Unstoppable Human Machine (RUHM) delves into fantastical lives of two fated neighbours. In the course of a day’s misadventures, they journey beyond the mundane routine of everyday existence, discovering surprising new connections with the world, and with each other.

Featuring vertical-swinging trapeze, never-ending ropes, a spinning carousel, and a very temperamental staircase, RUHM offers up a playful, modernist parable about the futility of grand plans and the joys of giving into imagination and simply letting go.

Developed in association with Roundhouse (London) with support from Pontio (Bangor) Ffwrnes (Llanelli) and 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.
