Somewhere The Whistler has never been, but has always wanted to go is Colombia. The bigger South American countries – Brazil, Argentina – usually get the column inches, but really, Colombia sounds extraordinary. Colourful, vibrant and full of “up” and if it wasn’t for our carbon footprint…
As chance would have it, we don’t have to go. A slice of Colombia is coming to us in the shape of Circolombia, one of the world’s leading circus companies. Their new show Acéléré is a mix of mad acrobatics and vibrant Latin music, singing and dancing and all that gravity-defying circus stuff that makes you feel exhausted watching and makes you ask “How do they do that?”
It’s as near to the streets of Bogotá as we’re going to get this Christmas.
Felicity Simpson, Director & Creative Producer of Circolombia said: “Acéléré means accelerate in Spanish and this perfectly explains the theme behind our show – it is all about taking risks and having the courage to move forward and most importantly it is the women who lead the way. After the darkness of the last year, we can’t wait to bring our Latin passion and energy – the DNA of Circolombia – to Brighton.”
