A UK Premiere

Enter a world of visual magic with contemporary circus company Rapid Eye.

Combining impeccable timing, acrobatic tricks and playful choreography, two performers toy with the idea of optical illusions.

Supported by beats from electronica-musician Bjørn Svin, this humorous and charming show for all ages poses the question - what is it that we really see and hear?

Have your perceptions of juggling and circus redefined.

The Moon Illusion is performed by two of Scandinavia's most original circus artists, Samuel Gustavvson and Petter Wadsten. Rapid Eye are renowned in Denmark for making works at the intersection between New Circus, dance and visual theatre, exploring relationships between the body, object and the mind.

Suitable: 6yrs+
Duration: Approx. 50 mins
