360 ALLSTARS

This show has the kind of title that gets you feeling excited right away. 360 ALLSTARS promises a full spectrum of stunts and tricks from various street-based performing methods. Involving a ton of urban styles - breakin', basketball skills, MCing, BMXing, beat boxing and Roue Cyr to name a few - this show definitely promises to bring something totally new to the field of circus entertainment.

This is such a fresh take on the circus concept, with tricks and acrobatics given a different urban twist that really makes this show stand out.

The show is an extravaganza of technique and expertise. As each member of the team is introduced we get a tiny flavour of what's to come, and as each of them then individually takes to the stage we really get to see what they can do.

Rhys Miller makes Roue Cyr look easy as he handles the giant metal hoop with ease and confidence, even when he is so dangerously close to the ground that he elicits gasps from the audience. Similarly, Peter Sore demonstrated amazing BMX-based tricks, even more impressive given the inevitably confined stage space he had to work with. Basketball Man provides not only huge skill but a really unexpected amount of comic relief, which was a pleasant surprise. A special mention has to go to Sam Perry, not only for his MCing but for providing all the music and utilising a loop station, guitar effects pedal and a microphone. Perry does things for live-looping unlike anything I've experienced before. Taking the time to explain to the audience what he was doing was a great idea, as it was so flawless and well done I don't think any of us would have known he wasn't just playing tracks.

This is such a fresh take on the circus concept, with tricks and acrobatics given a different urban twist that really makes this show stand out. Not easy within the festival either, where circus acts have become so much more prevalent in the last few years. The hip-hop styling of this show was so genuine and felt far more real and authentic than I'd thought they would achieve. Definitely not to be missed!

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
