Bromance

Say hello to Adam, Arthur and Pete. A cheeky trio who take us through a whirlwind of brotherhood, laughter and love. Bromance is the circus show with a story to tell as the three men explore the art of the handshake, self expression and ultimately friendship.

prepare to be blown away by incredible acrobatics and sensational storytelling.

With the promise of a family-friendly acrobatic show, these three performers delivered a funny, physical and, at times, poignant show which dazzled the crowd. Though all three men were outstanding, the relationship between Arthur and Adam really shone. The connection and trust between these performers, along with effortless lifts, holds and featherlight movement made watching these two utterly enchanting. Pete, the comedy relief and wheel artist for the evening, was just the tonic as he punctuated poignant scenes with clowning around and show stopping stunts.

Few words are said aloud. We’re carried through the story with a few phrases, glances and holds; changing from reflective to playful seamlessly. Despite lacking dialogue, this show speaks volumes about sexuality, accepting support and expressing yourself - even when it’s hard.

This show is living proof that there’s magic in the spiegeltent Palais Du Variete, attracting only the latest, bravest and best performances each year. From shocking falls to sizzling musical numbers, Barely Methodical have produced a unique experience for audience members young and old. Bromance is a wonderfully fresh approach to circus with camaraderie and warmth at its core.

Hold your breath and prepare to be blown away by incredible acrobatics and sensational storytelling.

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.

Theatre MAD

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.
