Human is a brand new live show by Extraordinary Bodies touring from September 2021 onwards. This page is a sneak peek at some initial information. We will announce the tour and share more content about the show in early July.

About the show

This new live show by Extraordinary Bodies is a poetic record of our time, based on real life stories from our company and performers, and told through circus, music and film. Intimate, funny and celebratory, Human looks into the heart of birth, love and change. It reminds us that as humans, we have the extraordinary ability to move forward together by taking the time to really understand each other.
At a time when the world’s been cracked open, we invite you to spend an hour with us, imagining how we can make sure no one is left behind.
Human is BSL interpreted and audio described, and all performances are relaxed.
