“What I said….it was the truth…it just wasn’t the whole truth…”

Two acrobats meet.  They fall in love, settle down, dream of the future.  But beneath the surface, there is a truth that threatens to erode their fragile world. 

Heart-breaking and funny, Knot descends into an absurd competition over not-so-hidden secrets and lies.  This is the story of a very modern affair, exposed through powerful acrobatics and movement.

"Knot is breath-taking in every way"

- Josephine Leask, Resolution Review

Nikki & JD’s bold new show follows on from their appearance in the critically acclaimed Kin by Barely Methodical Troupe.  Knot has been created in collaboration with award-winning choreographer, Ben Duke of Lost Dog dance company (Juliet + Romeo).  

“surprisingly funny … the true success of Nikki and JD’s Knot lies in the sensitive portrayal of a strong and dynamic human bond.”

***** Eve Ryan, North West End

“a show of great complexity and breathtakingly-effortless acrobatic skill”

**** Peter Jacobs, The Review Hub

 

Age recommendation: 10+
