"Being part of the national programme marking 250 years of Circus has given us the opportunity to explore the rich 'design' aspects of the artform through contemporary costume, photographs, original posters from the 1800s to the present day in conjunction with live acts and more.
The showcase is complemented by an ongoing programme of live aerial acts with star attraction pieces by Performers in Residence, Claire Crook (Madam Mango) and Rio Willett. On the rope, Claire
Crook explores the idea of body image in Circus; focussing on what the body can do, not what it looks like, that makes you special. Rio Willett’s aerial hoop displays are a feat of strength and spectacle.
This exhibition is open until Sunday 8 July and is free admission. The National Centre for Craft and Design is open daily from 10am to 5pm.
