Hidden in a quiet corner of Shoreditch is the UK’s finest circus education centre. In two huge chamber rooms that used form a power station there is a flurry of acrobatic activity which somehow also maintains a hypnotic peacefulness. Melanie chats to trapeze artist Tom and Chief Executive Jane to find out about the goings on at Circus Space. Find out why running away to this circus is rather a good idea.
If you want to see Tom in Action, you can catch him in Heat 4 at ‘Circus Maximus’ at the Underbelly at Southbank the 18th and 19th of May.
