August was certainly a month of hard work for the Square Peg cast and crew, but it is worth it when we get such lovely feedback as this:
Hi, well done to everyone this afternoon at the Pavilion Theatre Worthing. You were all amazing! We had the most wonderful time and made even better by accosting Nikki in the coffee shop, what a lovely lady. Keep going you must be exhausted at the end of each show not to mention tour!

What an amazing production, I felt as if it was created just for me: a performance filled with so many of the things that excite me.
The constantly flowing and changing action of the ensemble was mesmerising, enhanced by the atmospheric music and sound track. The creation of the ship with billowing sails and the alarmingly-high mast and rigging was so effective….with the aerial acrobatics to make us all gasp and appreciate the danger of the ‘vessel’.

Just saw @squarecircus tremendous aerialist/acrobat/dance piece “Rime” in probably the best weather – as close to stormy as was safe! Wow!
Residency at Dance City
Dance City in Newcastle is our fabulous home this week for our last R&D period of the tour. We are spending time to work with our choreographer Martin Corri on combining dance and acrobatic movement, expanding Square Peg’s creative and movement vocabulary to create material for our new production planned for 2016.
As part of our Creative Summer residency, Square Peg delivered a workshop with local students and young practitioners at Dance City and with Newcastle Youth Circus Circus Central.
