Barely Methodical Troupe


The boys from the smash hit Bromance are back with KIN, an innovative and exhilarating five-star show about camaraderie. KIN sees the original Barely Methodical Troupe joined by an astounding trio of circus performers. Together they form part of a new wave of modern British Circus, featuring an exciting mix of physical stunts, contemporary dance and theatrics.

KIN explores group dynamics and examines how they shift, evolve and provoke conflict as the group competes for attention and approval. Performed using Barely Methodical Troupe's unique style, these ideas are explored through high octane circus skills, incredible feats of strength, hand-to-hand balancing, acrobatics and Cyr wheel routines. The performers’ physical prowess is deftly deployed, as tumbling, flying and catching become challenges and opportunities for individual bids of recognition.

One of the UK’s hottest circus companies Barely Methodical Troupe are at the forefront of a new kind of physical performance, creating highly entertaining shows that mix the show-stopping acrobatics of circus with the emotional punch of theatre.

A beautiful, sad, funny complicated thing… blossoms into something visually arresting and emotionally vast (The Stage *****).

KIN premiered at CircusFest 2016. It is produced by DREAM and funded by Arts Council England, with support from Lawrence Batley Huddersfield, the National Centre for Circus Arts and the Roundhouse.

Admission: £10 – £15.50
