2024 Festival Dates: 6 & 7 July

Vaiven Circo presents: Do Not Disturb

A vibrant, unmissable and FREE street performance that brings the ingenuity of making dramatically to life, Do Not Disturb takes festival goers back to the early 20th century, evoking a day’s work in a factory. Performed for the very first time outside London, Spanish circus company, Vaiven Circo Danza, perform this high energy, poetic show, combining dance, acrobatics and physical theatre with contemporary circus tricks on each day of the festival. The characters are asked to build a machine, but without a guide as to how the it fits together, the performance throws up all manner of funny, exciting and risky situations. As they fit the various, oversized components together, a colossal and expressive performance unfolds, relying on balance and counter balance to successfully manage the huge, wooden sculptural form.
