Box of Frogs is an exhilarating blend of high-octane, highly visual performance showcasing a deluge of circus skills including trick-cycling, tumbling, rope work and acrobalance, all engulfed in a reservoir of film and a myriad of colour.
Directed by Mish Weaver and devised with a company of highly skilled circus performers, this is a circus show with a difference.
A feast for the eyes, a jaw-dropping night of entertainment, this is Bipolar circus – otherwise known as a manically depressed form of entertainment.
Box of Frogs is one of only a few Unlimited Commissions, supported by LOCOG and Arts Council to celebrate disabled artists in the Cultural Olympiad; it explores circus as a metaphor for emotional instability, inspired by Mish Weaver’s experience of bipolar disorder. Its serious underlying theme is matched by a dynamic ensemble circus show, with some real crowd-pleasing moments, suitable for all ages.
The show previewed in London at Jacksons Lane in November 2011 with great success – sold out the first night and 90% full the second – and is touring UK venues in September and October 2012.
