Created as a commission for Pontio arts and innovation centre in Bangor, Gwyledd, SHINE was the first piece of circus performance to welcome the public into the new building.

Featuring seven artists from Pirates of the Carabina, renowned Welsh Harpist Gwen Gibbard and local school children, SHINE saw the beautiful foyer space animated with tightwire, Chinese pole, Counterweighted acts and a flying harpist. All set to an original live musical score.


Come make this world a Wonderful Adventure.

RELENTLESS UNSTOPPABLE HUMAN MACHINE (RUHM) - The brand new mechanically ingenious circus show from the makers of international hit FLOWN.

Adventure into a world of mechanical chaos, where everything has a mind of its own and connections appear in unexpected ways. As contraptions, fixtures and fittings come to life, our heroes begin to question their place in it all. 

Exhilaratingly anarchic, with a beautifully inventive, interconnected set and original live score, Relentless Unstoppable Human Machine (RUHM) delves bravely into the fantastical imaginations of two fated acrobats.

“An exceptional circus experience unlike any other – something everyone should see.” Freya, Bangor

Wow. It was as a privilege to see your new show. Human, warming, exquisite and magic !!! Thank you Martine, North Wales

 A lovely show for anyone of any age – I brought two octogenarians and they haven’t stopped talking about it since!!! Anna Griffiths

Featuring vertical-swinging trapeze, never-ending ropes, a spinning carousel, high-wire and a very temperamental staircase, RUHM offers up a playful, humorous modernist parable for all the family, about time, technology and the forces that drive us. 

Developed in association with Roundhouse (London) with support from Pontio (Bangor) Ffwrnes (Llanelli) and funded by Arts Council England and Arts Council of Wales.

WORLD PREMIERE  Roundhouse, London Tuesday 3 April  Sunday 15 April 2018

Seeking Expressions of Interest for Touring from September 2018 onwards.
