About Viola - A New Shakespearean Circus

Viola is a brand new aerial theatre exploration using movement to investigate the psychological journey through gender identity, anxiety and isolation. Reimagining Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night through the eyes of Viola, this performance interweaves Shakespeare’s original text with aerial performance (Silks and Corde Lisse), floor acrobatics and live violin & cello to illuminate the inner questions and turmoil of Shakespeare’s most vibrant heroine.

Created and directed by Charlotte McKechnie and choreographed by Adam Wright, Viola represents a radical, darker reimagining of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedy, using breath-taking physicality and transfixing soundscape.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Viola - A New Shakespearean Circus are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
