Colombian Circus Brings the Party from Bogotá to Brighton This Christmas

News, Events

Fresh from Colombia’s capital city, one of the world’s leading circus companies, Circolombia, bring an uplifting on-stage party to Brighton Dome from 17 to 27 December, and everyone is invited!

Acéléré fuses exhilarating acrobatic feats with live singing, dancing and rapping in a circus-concert, ideal for families, a friends’ night out or an alternative festive celebration. The company of singers and circus artists will deliver an energetic, gravity-defying performance that showcases their skills and bravery, while transporting audiences to the vibrant streets of Bogotá through the upbeat sounds of Latin music.

Described as ‘fireworks in a matchbox’, Circolombia live by the motto ‘Compartir es Vivir’ – to share is to live – and life, love and laughter overflow from all the artists on stage. Combined with the company’s mesmerising abilities, their performances engage the audience in authentic, visceral and spine-tingling emotions to provide an unforgettable contemporary circus experience like no other.

Felicity Simpson, Director & Creative Producer of Circolombia said: 

“Acéléré means accelerate in Spanish and this perfectly explains the theme behind our show – it is all about taking risks and having the courage to move forward and most importantly it is the women who lead the way. After the darkness of the last year, we cannot wait to bring our Latin passion and energy - the DNA of Circolombia - to Brighton!”

Acéléré runs from 17 to 27 December (matinee and evening performances). Tickets start from £15, including family and group discounts and a special NHS staff offer. Socially distanced seating is available at some performances for audience members who may be vulnerable. To book, visit our What's On pages or contact the Ticket Office.

Workshops take place on 6, 7, 20, 21 November and 14 December and performance dates are 17 to 27 December.
