A night at the circus like no other. Belgium's much-loved Circus Ronaldo harks back to the days of travelling fairground theatre, a warm-hearted Felliniesque world of uncomplicated popular entertainment. Amortale
is Adam and Eve's love story, or would be if other people didn't keep getting in the way. Performed on the Ronaldo's antique and distinctly wobbly stage, it mixes tragedy and clowning, opera, circus, marionettes, and a touch of arson. Bathe in its old-world charm, skill and humour. Circus Ronaldo has been a regular visitor to London International Mime Festival since giving its first ever performances outside Flanders at LIMF 1998. Since then, it has toured its hand-crafted brand of commedia-circus far and wide. Age guidance: 8+. Running time: 75mins with no interval. Queen Elizabeth Hall. Part of London International Mime Festival (LIMF)
