About the event

Following a highly successful UK tour and an award-winning run at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017, Ellie Dubois’ No Show now transfers to Soho Theatre. Putting female strength, skill and power centre stage, No Show joyously and heartbreakingly deconstructs superhuman circus performers and reveals what lies hidden beneath the showmanship of circus.

No Show opens with five strong, glamorous circus artists showcasing their spellbinding acrobatics and flexibility – the perfect ‘show girls’. But, after this opening number, the show starts to break down and No Show begins to unveil attempts and failures, revealing frustrations and how artists are pitted against each other. The audience learn of everything that could go wrong from finger crushing to concussion and shoulder dislocation in a Cyr Wheel act.

In this production, we are allowed the opportunity to see behind the flawless smiles and perfect execution of traditional circus performance - to see the wobbles, the pain and the real cost of aiming for perfection. This is a show for anyone who has tried, failed and failed better.
