Performers from what am i worth by extraordinary bodies, at carlow arts festival

Circus: World Première of What am I Worth? at Carlow Arts Festival (audio described and ISL interpreted)

9 Jun 2018 (Past)

Festival HQ @ Carlow College

Seven extraordinary artists dance, fly, catch, play and sing on a flying, tipping, and spinning stage, as they grapple with what it means to value each other in a world of instant judgments.

The award winning, integrated circus company Extraordinary Bodies (UK), worked with a group of disabled and non-disabled Carlow community members to create this groundbreaking new show for 2018.

Carlow Arts Festival is partnering with a number of UK venues and festivals to present this work, which will have its World Première in Carlow before embarking on a UK Tour ending at the National Theatre River Stage in London.

This highly skilled and beautifully touching circus show for all ages features an exceptional cast of diverse and extraordinary bodies.

June 9th, 2pm & 7pm, outdoors at the Festival HQ at Carlow College

Free / Donation  (no need to book)

This show is accessible with integrated audio description and sign language interpretation (BSL & ISL). Touch tours are available before each show.

Extraordinary Bodies are supported by Arts Council England and the show has been developed with the support of the National Theatre (London).
