WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Jacksons Lane's annual residency programme for brand new circus returns. Transmission offers circus artists and companies the unique opportunity to experiment and collaborate with other artists and art forms.
Fiona Thornhill, Jessica Ladley and Lil Rice have currently completed the BA Honors Degree at the National Centre for Circus Arts, where they all specialise in Cyr Wheel. They are the first and only three women in the world to have trained Cyr together for three years and have thus learnt to synchronise their movement whilst also developing individual styles. They are the founders and core members of Alula. Alula wants to explore what it is like when you bring three new performers into a close-knit group and how this will affect the show and their relationships. For Transmission the company will be exploring these ideas with Wise Fools, a female trapeze trio from Finland.
