Circus Wednesdays: Jessica Arpin
Wednesday 15 August 2018 11:00 - 15:00 to 11:00 - 15:00
Wednesday 15th August - Performances at 11am & 2pm
Kalabazi tells the story of a young foreign woman who falls in love with the country in which she finds herself. Her work permit is about to run out, and she has only one solution which will allow her to stay to get married. But not to just anybody!
She therefore organises a contest to find the right person. Challenges will have to be undertaken... and then it will be her turn to seduce the public by performing acrobatics on her faithful yellow bicycle. But it will be thanks to the final test, a secret one, that the truth will be revealed. A mixture of circus, clown and poetry.
This event is part of the Coasters project.
Supported by Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring Fund, Coasters is a three year project that brings world-class circus and street arts work to coastal towns across England.
SeaChange Arts lead a consortium of 10 organisations with the shared ambition of building relationships with audiences in areas of lower engagement and helping transform perceptions of coastal towns.
Coasters will see top quality UK and international circus and street arts work programmed in events and festivals around the coast of England. Each Coasters partner will work with their own local partners to build audiences among the lowest engaged, while the project will also look to increase visitor audiences to each location.
Brilliant, exciting, engaging, entertaining and accessible, the work presented will be programmed with the coast in mind – resonant and reflective of coastal locations and audiences.
