Physically exhilarating and touchingly poignant, Knot is the internationally acclaimed circus and dance work by Nikki Rummer and JD Broussé. These talented performers use hand-to-hand circus skills to tell the tale of an impossible choice: How can we be honest with ourselves without hurting those we love? Knot is a finely crafted theatrical journey through the struggles of commitment.
Created in collaboration with award-winning choreographer Ben Duke of Lost Dog Dance Company, Knot is a very modern affair told with delicate sensitivity through breath-taking acrobatics and heart wrenching dance.
***** “Surprisingly funny. The true success of Nikki and JD’s The Knot lies in the sensitive portrayal of a strong and dynamic human bond” Eve Ryan, North West End
**** “A show of great complexity and breathtakingly-effortless acrobatic skill” Peter Jacobs, The Review Hub
