The Invisible Circus Presents: Weekends of Wonder! Bristol

The Invisible Circus is delighted to have received funding from Bristol City Council to bring Bristol’s Broadmead to life with an outdoor street performance festival spanning four weekends this May and June. 

 

Weekends of Wonder! is a street theatre festival with WOW! factor, bringing local and international artists together to light up the town with bedazzling acts to amaze audiences of all ages. WOW! will bring together veteran street performers alongside cutting edge new talent to create a truly magical atmosphere on our city’s central high street. Expect vibrant circus and theatrical ‘Covent Garden style’ performances in circle shows and interactive walkabout acts, plus a treasure hunt of artistic window installations to discover. Themes centre on connection, creativity, playfulness, sustainability and inclusivity; sparking imagination for positive futures and re-igniting hope.

 

WOW! Bristol is the first street performance festival of its kind in the city. Street theatre is one of the most inclusive, barrier-free and equal forms of entertainment available. By the very nature of it being free to attend, it is open for everyone to enjoy. Audience members do not need to have an understanding of the particular disciplines to appreciate or participate (and there will be a lot of opportunity for participation!). The performances are created specifically to suit outdoor locations, and are either designed to be language free or easily interactive with minimal language required, therefore welcoming non-English speakers and D/deaf audience members just as equally as anyone else. 

 

Joy is a celebration of life – and quality street theatre can deliver this in a way that positively engages the communities, businesses and stakeholders that use Broadmead, inviting us all to reimagine the future of our highstreets with positivity!

 

Acts will begin to be announced in March, with the full programme being released in April. Local walkabout acts still have the chance to perform - any interested performers are welcome to contact the team at Invisible Circus with more information about their act, by emailing: info@invisiblecircus.co.uk. If the act is suitable for the programme, the company will follow up.

 

Invisible Circus' Weekends of Wonder! is being delivered as one of the activities under the City Centre and High Streets Recovery and Renewal programme, funded by Bristol City Council and the West of England Combined Authority’s Love our High Streets project.
