Brings to life the absurdity that is the social party culture in the deep dark north
Surrealist circus dive into Nordic nightlife
This fantastical bar crawl explores the weird and awkward experiences that the northern nightlife has to offer, tackling it through the lens of comedy and contemporary circus.
The different circus skills bend the barrier between seemingly normal and weirdly spectacular. Approaching real life situations through awkward humour shows how things aren’t always that serious and that it’s ok to laugh to ourselves, even at our worst.
Has anyone ever gone home after promising to have just one drink? How do people queue to a nightclub when it’s minus 30oc outside? Three jugglers go into a bar and order one pint, whilst they all want to drink their sorrows away, can they avoid getting distracted and falling into wild dance-offs, juggling and acrobatics? And how do we deal with things we’ve got to do on our worst morning after?
Disco Inferno is a contemporary circus performance about the, at times, complicated relationship Northerners have with alcohol. It creates space for the audience to reflect on their habits and traditions.
