About this event

Gather around the fire and let us remind you of what it was to be afraid of the dark. Don’t build the fire too high, sing too loud or laugh too heartily because he’s out there and he’s hungry. 

The award-winning circus company Nikki & JD in collaboration with Lost Dog have created an outdoor show that combines circus, dance, theatre and live music to re-enact the original horror story. The one about the monster, and the monster’s mother, and the dragon and the hero and the severed limbs. 

Dark, comic and physically dangerous this is a modern re-telling of that ancient epic, Beowulf. 

About Nikki and JD:

Nikki Rummer and JD Broussé are an acrobatic duo with a unique blend of skills in circus and contemporary dance. Since the beginning of their collaboration they have sought to push and refine their use of hand-to-hand acrobatics, dance and storytelling. Their mission is to achieve strong storytelling while dancing what needs to be danced. They believe that acrobatics and movement are two ingredients that should support, and not distract, from the stories they tell.
