Circus Circus Circus is a festival of circus, live art, spoken word, jazz and opera performance presented by Certain Blacks, showcasing work developed by artists at a residency at 101 Creation Space situated at Greenham Common — the former USAF base now dedicated to arts development.
Certain Blacks presents performance, live art, music and theatre and the creative voice of our diverse society. Past festivals have included Franko B, Lady Vendredi and Byron Wallen.
Circus Circus Circus will feature a range of talent including Brian Lobel, Rowland Sutherland, Muti Musafiri and Marv Radio, and the programme aims to present high quality and diverse work via different art forms. Performances take place at Rich Mix, home of previous Certain Blacks festivals, and London’s historic Hoxton Hall.
The festival will also partner with Upswing Arial Circus, the company formed by Victoria Amedume. Upswing presents a mixed bill finale of new work featuring Symoné, Joana Dias and Out Of Order, amongst others*.
