"The Exploded Circus" is a show about a moment where an explosion has been frozen in time and the remnants of a big top caught mid-air with everything from circus ring, sequins and fairground horses suspended above ground. The Exploded Circus tells a story without words where six female performers have to come together to seek order in the chaos and create a new normal, exploring themes around change, hope and belonging.
Arielle Lauzon presented her amazing Chinese hoops skills jumping through set of hoops at different heights as well as her slack rope and acrobatic skills.
Alice Allart presented the Trick bike act showing her balance skills off as she drove a bike around the stage with 5 people on her back which was awesome!
Lynn Scott presented her Juggling skills as she juggled with more than 5 juggling clubs which was very impressive.
I must mention 3 other ladies from the cast (Rebecca Rennison, Coral Dawson and Farrell Cox) who all presented different aerial skills leaving the audience on the edge of their seats as they were high up in the air.
The set for this show was designed by Loren Elstein. The set was huge and full of different things everywhere to create the illusion of frozen time after an explosion has occurred and it was definitely one of the best sets I have ever seen.
