Things I Know About You
Last Word Festival, Roundhouse 2019
Tell secrets. Tell lies. White lies. Tell truths. Half truths.
Weaving stories and facts to tangle up the truth as limbs thread through limbs; using the game Two Truths and a Lie alongside acrobatic choreography, Things I Know About You explores how we lie, playing with what we can convince each other and the audience of with our bodies and words.
A new collaboration between Sarah April Lamb and Alex Aina born from their work with the Roundhouse Street Circus Collective.
Edinburgh Fringe Festival, 2017
From shimmying into a bikini under a beach towel to slowly taking off a lover's shirt, Bare Threads explores what we reveal of ourselves as we peel away our layers of clothes and wrap ourselves back up. Join us as we seek spontaneity and routine, awkwardness and abandon, intimacy and sensuality as we experiment with our wardrobe.
"Bare Threads is a wonderfully crafted piece of physical genius and shows off the talent of this young company. It is both hilarious and thoughtful and an inspired concept" (Edinburgh Guide)
Summerhall (Edinburgh), 2015
Four humours, four seasons, four elements. To Breathe is a physical exploration of how each body and each life breathes as it moves through cycles of being. With each expansion and contraction of our lungs, and with every beat of our heart, our bodies tell stories that tie us to the earth.
'Fast, powerful and ever-ready to surprise' (Broadway Baby)
A Thief on the Wind
Edinburgh Fringe Festival, 2014
A cursed wind, tired of watching the monotonous lives of the people it blows past, brings a storm to a town stirring up chaos amongst its inhabitants. A Thief on the Wind celebrates the present moment, inviting the audience to be placed in the centre of the action and to choose who to follow throughout the performance.
'It’s a piece that blurs fantasy with reality and when a storm builds and the group swoop around and at us it’s effective, invigorating stuff.’ (The Scotsman)
