Comic, absurd, surreal, Anyday is a trampoline and physical theatre piece that will transcend expectations of what a circus show can be.
This may be the last day in this place. Max may have been in this place for some time. And today, Max will pull us deeper into the intimate world he shares with his bird on his trampoline. This world is a tender, heart-breaking world. A world filled with strange sounds, echoes of the past, and perhaps an idea of the future?
Comic, absurd, surreal, Anyday explores the archaeology of loneliness with light, darkness and ultimately joy.
Set to an original score by Matt Huxley, Anyday is a charming tale that transmutes the clangs and boings of unbearable hope to make our spirits soar.
