Circolombia: Acelere

Mon 27 Sep 2021


Fresh from Bogotá, one of the world’s leading circus companies Circolombia return with the extraordinary Acelere, a high-energy modern circus show with a distinctive Latin feel.

A relentless experience from start to finish, this ‘circo-concierto’ mixes acrobatic feats with dance, live singing, and rapping, all set to an original soundtrack spanning hip hop and electro-cumbia, salsa choke and drum & bass. It’s an emotion-packed show, all about taking risks and moving forward but most importantly its a “non-stop circus party that puts a smile on your face and a spring in your step” - The Stage

Ideal for families or a night out with friends this festive season, Circolombia will transport you to the bustling streets of Colombia’s capital city with their gravity-defying performance, breathtaking skill, and bravery. Expect a party atmosphere and a few surprises.

Curtain raiser 
Brighton and Hove Youth Circus performers aged 10–18 will perform a curtain raiser before each Circolombia performance.
