A puzzle for physics: six men stand on a seesaw. To the left, a group of five men in their twenties, wearing jeans and casual jackets in shades of grey. They cling to each other, looking suspiciously over towards the sixth man. He has a thick beard and a knowing smile, as he stands with hands in his pockets, holding down his end of the seesaw alone.

Acclaimed Canadian circus company Machine de Cirque stage a humorous and high-energy production where six guys find themselves living in a post-apocalyptic world. They are alone and embark on a quest to find other survivors with the help of a strange machine. Will they succeed?

Demonstrating impressive acrobatic skills and masterful handling of a teeterboard, juggling clubs, a drum kit and even a bath towel, trailblazers Machine de Cirque bring you circus, spectacle, comedy and live music in a witty production that will keep you on the edge of your seat and make up for the perfect Jubilee holiday treat, to enjoy with the family, friends or on a date night out.

The Snowman
In a snowy landscape with tall pine trees leaning in from the sides, winter figures dance in pairs – in the centre a tall snowman wraps fluffy arms around the shoulders of a young girl in white tulle as she points a foot in a ballet slipper. Around them, other pairs are in the same pose – including snowmen, penguins, and Father Christmas.

Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty - New Adventures
Framed by a thicket of tangled tree branches, Aurora leaps forward in a white flowing gown, her arms out to the sides and her leg kicked back. From among the branches, six fairies and elves are emerging, dressed decadently in black and gold, and reaching towards Aurora. Around them all are red roses and rose petals, floating in the air and carpeting the floor. In a central opening in the thicket, a full moon can be seen shining through the trees.
