Jules Verne’s classic tale is given a tactile circus twist in this colourful acrobatic adventure, sensitively introducing young audiences to the issues of climate change. Follow our hero Phileas Fogg as he ventures around the planet, rushing through the rainforest and across oceans to win his wager. On his way, he’ll witness some of the dangers our planet faces because of modern travel, from birds affected by oil spills, rubbish thrown into the ocean and monkeys in danger as the trees are cut down in the rainforest. Running time 40 mins.
Following the performance, audience members are able to give into their curiosity and join the cast to play on the big-rig Aerial Playground. People of all ages and abilities can try aerial hoop, hammock and skills on the ladder, with hula hoop, juggling and toys for really little ones. Workshop running time up to 1 hour, included in ticket price.
