Circus, live music, crazy contraptions and paper take over Southbank Centre’s Purcell Room this Christmas in Folds, a show by Spanish theatre company Enfila’t. The witty and heart-warming family show comes to London as part of Southbank Centre’s Winter Festival.

Paper lies at the heart of the production and is the inspiration behind the performance, from acrobatics in a cardboard box to tight-rope walking on a line made of twisted brown paper; it even serves as a tasty snack when the cast get hungry. The performers dance, spin, fold and unfold themselves through this madcap world of paper, and also perform daring tricks on a precarious rocking-frame apparatus.

The award-winning international company comprises some of Europe’s finest circus acrobats. The four performers combine their circus-skills with performing live music. Between them they play a range of instruments, including keyboard, double bass, accordion and trombone, as well as making music with more unconventional sources including scissors, sellotape and, of course, paper.

The show comes to London as part of Southbank Centre’s Winter Festival (Friday 15 November – Friday 10 January), which will see the riverside site transformed with festive shows, art installations and bustling markets selling gifts, food and drink.
