The Construct/Glow

Let’s hear it for a double bill of circus works celebrating hope and humanity: 


The Construct - a poignant mix-up of circus and contemporary dance, created in direct response to the effects of living in lockdown.

Glow - a playful exploration of light and joy created as the world emerged from lockdown. 

Directed by acclaimed independent Director Zebastian Hunter, The Construct and Glow explores the intersection of circus and architecture whilst exploring the healing power of arts and culture in everyday life.

Flying, tumbling and contorting across a 3m x 3m cube sculpture made from welded steel, this elite ensemble of acrobatic artists interweave stories that craft a visual salute to personal strength, resilience and engagement.


In the Construct they perform to Judith Stubbs moving neo classical score which captures the uncertain and challenging times in which the piece was created. In Glow, the apparatus is lit by baton of lights and performed to Ian Morehead’s contemporary score. 

The Construct initial development took place in 2020 with the support of Circus Monoxide between lockdowns and in direct response to experience of artists facing Covid restrictions. Both  works were seeded in the development and they can be performed together as a double bill or separately. The works can be perfomred indoors and outdoors.
