Circus City: Tongue & Cheek – By Ruby Burgess and Charles Brockbank

Ruby Burgess and Charles Brockbank present: Tongue & Cheek

A night of fresh alternative comedy mixed with circus theatre. Two new experimental shows, from Bristol based emerging artists, bringing you something you’ve never seen before. A surreal twist on skillful spectacle with comedy at the core, come and join each of them as they turn life on its head and throw it into question.


‘Transcendental’ is a satirical deep dive into grotesque aspects of the human experience. Using trapeze, physical theatre and a comical amount of existentialism, we’re taken on a fever dream journey through the absurdity of being alive.


Do you ever feel like you’re being watched? Hiding in plain sight is an exploration of surveillance culture, using physical comedy and object manipulation. Join this performer as he tackles the impossible task of juggling our virtual identities and our authentic self.
