CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).
Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.
Alegria features an international cast of 56 performers and musicians from 13 countries. The 2 and half hour spectacle showcases acrobatics including the dramatically sensuous Synchro-Trapeze and the hi-energy Aerial High Bars where daring aerialists fly to catchers swinging more than 40 feet in the air. Imagine two agile performers who bring alive the Mongolian art of contortion and an artist manipulating flaming knives around his body in a rhythmic and dangerous Fire Knife Dance. The vibrancy of youth is alive in Fast Track, a display of synchronized choreography. In Russian Bars, artists fly through the air with somersaults, landing on bars perched on the sturdy shoulders of catchers.
