Gluttony – The Peacock, Sun 14 Feb

Le Petit Circus is a show that is aimed at introducing children to circus. It features four talented performers, each with their own specialities, big smiles and audience connection as well as being great team players. I took some random children to make sure I had access to a child’s point of view. Ms almost-three sat in raptures; it was her first such gig and she quickly joined in the clapping and merriment. Mr almost-five clapping along as well as asking how did they do that?

Routines included juggling with pins, hats and other things, aerial silk, acrobatics, trapeze, unicycles and hoola hoop, with a few routines including several of these strung along.

Given the nature of the audience, very specific instructions were given about clapping, cheering and generally making your appreciation known and heard – helping the children join in and being comfortable to do so (and of course the older members of the audience helped model this). There was a bit of clowning about, in the acrobatic sense, playing up the characters and personalities involved.

The all-ages crowd ranged from grandparents to the children of three or so and every age in-between – none of whom was disappointed. After the last routine the performers were all outside the tent, wanting to shake hands, give high fives and generally interact with the children – something that every one of the children were very happy to do.

Le Petit Circus is a great excuse to get young kids out to acrobatic performance – you’ll all be happy to have done so!
