A twisted exploration of trying to remember and not remembering. In this two-hander, featuring tightwire, aerial straps and all manner of circus skills, frustration and distorted moments arise from each attempt, and failure, to remain connected to the world. Lola explores themes of loneliness, social exclusion and dementia through the lens of black comedy and circus. Physical comedy and circus stunts bring humour and lightness to serious subjects – always with a strong spirit of the absurd.

“Impressive … elegant and simple,” – Exeunt

“A beautiful, breathtaking, shockingly funny, tenderly moving exploration of memory and loss.” – Lucy Loves Circus

“Poignant, understated, hugely skilled, this number left a big impression,” – Resolution Review
