“What I said….it was the truth…it just wasn’t the whole truth…”

Two acrobats meet. They fall in love and dream of the future. But beneath the surface, there lies a truth that threatens to undermine their bond.

Heart-breaking yet humorous, Knot is the story of a very modern affair told sensitively through breath-taking acrobatics and dance.

Nikki & JD’s new show follows on from their appearance in the critically acclaimed Kin by Barely Methodical Troupe. Knot has been created in collaboration with award-winning choreographer, Ben Duke of Lost Dog Dance company.

Knot is co-commissioned and supported by Jacksons Lane, Déda, Jerwood Choreographic Research Project II, The National Centre for Circus Arts, Arts Council England and Warwick Arts Centre.

Surprisingly funny … the true success of Nikki and JD’s Knot lies in the sensitive portrayal of a strong and dynamic human bond.

★★★★ Eve Ryan, North West End

A show of great complexity and breathtakingly-effortless acrobatic skill

Where I’m from, hardly anyone is exposed to the arts. There’s a load of talent but no guidance. Roundhouse changed my life.
