Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

Extraordinary Bodies presents 'Human'

Human combines the visual spectacle of aerial circus and dance, film and a binaural soundtrack. Human is an antidote to anxiety, gently bridging the transition from being at home in a pandemic to live performance in a tender, quirky collage of lives past and now.

The show has been created to be as accessible as possible.

Extraordinary Bodies is a collaboration between two distinct companies, Cirque Bijou and Diverse City. It brings together a circus company of disabled and non-disabled artists creating new, hybrid shows criss-crossing the boundaries of music, film, technology, circus and theatre.

Human is a different show to those Extraordinary Bodies has presented previously, because it was made during the pandemic and the company has evolved.

During the pandemic lockdowns, Human was created through the sharing of stories in voice and video messages about the meaning, the uncertainty and the unknown of being human.

To make Human, the team explored their experiences of the pandemic and were inspired by recollections of childhood memories, their mums, falling in love, life-changing moments and a love of sweets.

Human is on tour around the UK until Spring 2022.
