What Am I Worth?
In a world where there is not enough to go around, survival hangs in the balance and people are made to prove their worth. Against all odds, they dance, fly and sing on a tipping and spinning stage where the ground becomes the sky and the floor becomes the ceiling. Who will be left when the world stops spinning? A circus show with original live music and groundbreaking physical physicality.
What Am I Worth? was made with 150 people – Citizen Artists – from across the UK and Ireland and originally toured in 2018. Every performance features local Citizen Artists who tell their own stories and sing. All performances are audio described and sign language interpreted. Touch tours are available 1 hour before each show.
An update on the show
Extraordinary Bodies wasn’t able to go on tour in 2020, but we’ve been keeping busy. We have employed artists and creatives over the summer to create a digital piece around What Am I Worth? called What Do You See In Me?. We premiered the piece in September and brought it to KNAÏVE’s digital festival in December 2020.
In early 2021, we will start developing a new version of our show What Am I Worth?. We are also working on more digital experiments with all our circus artists, actors, musicians and young artists.
What Am I Worth? has been developed with the support of the National Theatre, 101 Outdoor Arts and The Point Eastleigh.
