Extraordinary Bodies is a professional circus company and a partnership between Cirque Bijou and Diverse City. We weren’t able to tour in 2020, but we’ve as busy as ever. We have employed artists and creatives over the summer to create a short film called What Do You See In Me?, which we premiered in September and brought to KNAÏVE’s digital festival in December 2020.
We have also commissioned artists to create 4 digital projects during the pandemic with a £15,000 emergency funding grant from Arts Council England. We have supported 6 Unexpected Leaders and ran online creative performance workshops with marginalised groups in Plymouth, Rochdale and Poole through our National Lottery funded project Connecting Communities.
Right now, we are developing a new show that combines live and digital performance called Human). We are also working on more digital commissions with our circus artists, actors, musicians and young artists. We look forward to sharing this work with you and to exploring how we will meet, play and perform together again soon.
