Extraordinary Bodies’ spectacular new circus theatre musical combines the skill and talent of D/deaf, disabled, and non-disabled artists.
The show, Waldo's Circus of Magic & Terror, rolls into the Brighton Dome on June 7 for the final date of a successful three-month tour.
It’s 1933 Germany and the Nazis are burning books and suspending civil rights. Many are desperate to escape, but for Waldo and his travelling circus of outcasts, acrobats, and aerialists, ‘the show must go on’.
Based on historical research and the experiences of real performers the show highlights the daring humanity and courage of a circus troupe that went unseen beneath the painted-on glamour of the big top during the dark days of Nazi Germany.
It is testament to how diverse, extraordinary people could work equally together on and off stage in 1933 as they do today, 90-years later.
