It's a big year for one of the UK's leading contemporary circus companies, Lost in Translation.

It's their 10th anniversary year which the company intends marking with a London tour this summer.

Over the past decade, the company have delighted audiences across the world from Australia to the Edinburgh Fringe.

They are leaders in the field of story-led circus productions and the summer tour will include full-length productions featuring amazing acrobatic skills.

Lost in Translation will be appearing at Wandsworth Arts Fringe, Rose Theatre Kingston (as part of the International Youth Arts Festival) and at the Underbelly Festival, playing this year at Cavendish Square near Oxford Circus.

The tour will feature 3 shows ...


Kicking-off the tour will be Above at Wandsworth Arts Fringe on 26 and 27 June.

The show is a work-in-progress circus fable inspired by Italo Calvino's novel The Baron in the Trees.

Above tells the story of a rebellious spirit who leaps from the ground to take up life among the treetops.

Designed to appeal to audiences of all ages, its a comical and exciting production featuring high-flying aerial stunts, amazing acrobatics and hilarious knockabout slapstick juggling.

Cabaret Unlocked

Presented alongside Above, Cabaret Unlocked is curated by Katharine Arnold (Olympics Opening Ceremony 2012, aerialist and choreographer; La Soiree, Sydney Opera House, Roundhouse).

This new show is an exclusive night of high thrills, high spills circus featuring death-defying aerial stunts, stunning acrobatics, jugglers, hand balancers and more.

Hotel Paradiso

This production epitomises what Lost in Translation do best - showcasing the daring and virtuosic skills and tricks of this multi-national and multi-talented cast of performers.

This thrilling show includes Company Director and Performer, Massimiliano Rossetti and core artist, Roisin Morris, the Guinness World Record holders for most catches on the Korean Cradle - a discipline rarely seen on UK stages.

For this summer only, Hotel Paradiso will also feature a special guest performance from award-winning circus and cabaret artist Abigail Collins (La Clique, West End).

Here's a taster of the show ...

Massimiliano Rossetti commented ...

"We're so excited to be back on stage with a bang for our 10th anniversary year! At Lost in Translation, we have a deep desire to connect people, communities and cultures through our character driven theatrical shows and our trademark warm humour.

This past year has seen us separated from both our loved ones and what we love doing, so we can't wait to bring a smile to new audiences across the capital."
