A free circus performance in Barnsley this weekend will feature dance, circus, parkour and climbing.
As part of The Lord Mayor’s Parade, Kapow Dance will perform their amazing show The Boulderers. a new outdoor production featuring dance, circus, parkour and climbing. The brave team of performers climb the walls, climb one another, get lost, find themselves, and inspire anyone who’s watching to get outside and play.
Co-Commission by Greentop Circus Sheffield and The Civic, Barnsley supported by the Arts Council of England and Moon Climbing, The Boulderers is the promenade story of Rock Climbers pushing their limits, forming firm friendships and boldly re-imagining the city as the crag.
The show starts on the street with a surprising performance of gymnastics where the audience meet the climbers before moving on through the town on a 30min promenade journey. At each site a scene unfolds telling a new piece to the story, inviting us into the exciting world of climbing. The audience follows the show to different locations, and watches on in wonder as the Boulderers explore well known buildings.
There is comedy, fear, transformation, support and bravery in a performance full of surprises and fun.
- The Boulderers is on Saturday 14 July at 11:00am and 1:30pm in Barnsley Town Centre as part of The Mayor’s Parade.
