I am Somebody

Wed 3rd – Mon 29th Aug 2016


“A non-stop, visually stunning hour of playfulness”





Sirqus Alfon


Sirqus Alfon started on the streets in '97, falling in love with their audiences and their audiences returning the favour. Today, they take that connection and interactivity to a new, high-tech, level. This is not the streets anymore, this is nerdery on stage at its finest and funniest.

I Am Somebody, presented in collaboration with Follow the Rabbit, hangs in the balance between hacker and maker. Material is being made constantly throughout the show as the audience become the cast of stop motion animations, YouTube clips and music videos. Expect a non-stop, visually stunning hour of playfulness – for the curious, the clubber, the live music fan, and the kid in everyone.

After a swathe of performances for the likes of the King of Sweden and Avicii, these guys know that everyone will join them in being a playful, silly kid again for a little while.

“A smorgasbord of frantic comedy, anarchistic creativity and hypomanic whim. Simply magic.”
