Barely Methodical Troupe, Bromance

One of the hottest UK circus company right now fly into ……… with their brand new show KIN.

Barely Methodical Troupe blasted onto the UK circus scene in 2014 with their debut show BROMANCE, winning awards and becoming an international hit show.

KIN premiered at the Roundhouse’s Circusfest in 2015 to standing ovations, 5 star reviews and a sold out run.

KIN explores group dynamics and how it feels to jostle for attention, camaraderie and affection.

“…. Mortifyingly funny new wave British circus….stunning moments” The Guardian ★★★★

Barely Methodical’s physical prowess is deftly deployed examining the shifting relationships within the group. Tumbling, flying and catching become interpersonal challenges, support mechanisms and opportunities for individual bids for recognition.

“KIN is a beautiful, sad, funny and complicated thing….(it) blossoms into something visually arresting and emotionally vast.” The Stage ★★★★★

Highly entertaining KIN is a new kind of physical performance, circus as theatre from Barely Methodical Troupe “ of the newest and most dynamic circus ensembles in the UK” The Stage.

“…enjoy the breathtaking athleticism……...” Evening Standard ★★★★
