CRASH is a rollercoaster of feelings, a symphony of colliding bodies. A show that chases moments of emotional intensity, a story about life’s ups and downs, a celebration of strength and fragility. The premier of CRASH will take place at The Cockpit Theatre as part of the Camden Fringe Monday 21st and Tuesday 22nd August 2017 with further dates to be announced in 2018.
Featuring breath-taking aerial dance, intimate acrobatics, jaw-dropping fire performance, and an array of circus artists of the highest ability CRASH is a raw poetic exploration of human feelings in their purest form.
CRASH was created by Edward Gosling and Laurane Marchive for Chivaree Circus; their work includes a combined 15 years of performance experience, a Guinness World record to their name and past productions for festivals including Glastonbury, Latitude, Primavera, Electric Picnic and many others as well as for club nights, parties, charities, events. Chivaree Circus has performed internationally across the UK, Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. CRASH is Chivaree Circus’ second solo production, following on from a critically acclaimed and sold out run of their immersive circus show Becoming Shades at the Vaults, Waterloo. Critics described Becoming Shades as “breathtaking”, “haunting”, “brilliant” and the show won the “Origins Award” for “Outstanding New Work” at the Vault Festival.
