“real invention…mesmerizing” Guardian

This week, award-winning circus troupe Barely Methodical Troupe, a company who have performed internationally as far as New York and Sao Paolo will be in Barnsley for two performances of Shift.

The latest show from Barely Methodical Troupe features their trademark performance style combining show-stopping acrobatics with the emotional punch of theatre.

Four extraordinary performers test their physical limits in a tense display of power-based acrobatics. Following up their international smash-hits Bromance and Kin, this is an explosive display of acrobatics that will challenge gravity; alter perspectives; and spin your head around.

Using string games, rubber bands, storytelling and all available resources they attempt to take some control of their space. Shift features core company members, big man Louis Gift and international cyr wheeling star Charlie Wheeller, working with Spain’s leading break dancer Elihu Vazquez and top Swedish acrobat and flyer Esmeralda Nikolajeff.
