Circus in a Bottle is an interactive and immersive live performance presented using digital and augmented reality. We follow ‘The Barker’ who, despite growing up in the Circus, has inherited none of his family’s skills. Touring big tops with his grandiose father, he witnessed it all; acts that defied logic, defined generations and underlined the majesty of the sawdust ring. But now, those once great Circus names have vanished into history for good… or have they?

The Barker and his miniature assistant recreate these Circus acts from bygone years before your very eyes. Once told, he packs these stories into a suitcase ready to take to the road.

This incredible experience fuses cutting edge technology with live performance using Magic Leap AR headsets. Following on from the unfortunate cancellation of this year's VAULT festival, where Circus in a Bottle was due to make its world premiere, we are excited to bring it to an alternate venue where audiences will discover some of the trapeze-like highs and the crushing lows of life under the big top.

We are offering a special deal if you are also seeing All Falls Down, an interactive storytelling show on at the same time in the same venue by Chronic Insanity.

To get this discount please use the code ALLFALLSDOWN at checkout. You will need to book each show separately and please ensure you use the same name when booking the tickets.
