…A Night at the Circus. to celebrate 250 years of the modern british circus, this fun survey of the current scene has a bit of something for everyone. We visit the trad big top of Zippo’s circus and the punky Nofit State Circus, watch old-school clown Tweedy and marvel at Extraordinary Bodies – a disabled/able-bodied acrobat troupe, all bookended by Chris Bullzini’s breathcatching high-wire walk across the River Wear.
