Groupe Bekkrell and Circus City present

Following the cancellation of The Bekkrell Effect, Circus City and Bristol Old Vic invite the audience to a panel discussion including artists from Groupe Bekkrell and Circus City Co-Director Lina B. Frank.

The panel will discuss elements of risk in circus performance. How is circus different from other artforms in terms of risk? What does a cancellation such as this mean for the artists, festival and theatre? How does the circus sector work to minimise risks of injury and cancellation?

As part of the talk we will also hear from the artists about their artistic process and motivations for creating the show and about their lives as creatives.

This talk will be facilitated by Tanuja Amarasuriya.

Risking It

18 Oct

Running Time Approx. 1hr

This talk will be presented in both English and French with a translator.

In summer 2016 we began redevelopment works to transform our Front of House entrance on King Street into a welcoming, vibrant space that everyone will be able to enjoy. During this time, it will be business as usual in the Theatre with our brilliant programme on offer, however there are a few changes to how we'll be operating.

Theatre Entrance

You are now invited to enter the Theatre through our Stage Door, walking in the footsteps of theatre legends such as Peter O'Toole, Daniel Day-Lewis and Miranda Richardson.

Our temporary Theatre entrance can be accessed via Rackhay (BS1 4HJ) off Queen Charlotte Street, around the corner from King Street.

Ticket Collection

On performance days, tickets can be collected from Box Office situated in our Backstage Bar opening 90 mins prior to each performance.
