So….I went to the Midnight Circus at Jackson’s Lane last Friday night, and now I want to run away to the circus and become one of these crazy bendy people.
They were amaaaaaazing!
It’s a fantastically intimate, sexy show full of incredible feats of strength, great arrangements, and plenty of sparkly costuming. It was such a treat to see Katrina doing her thing (you might remember here from this circus inspired boudoir shoot), and it was lovely to catch up with her again and also meet some of the other performers after the show. Everyone I spoke to was so welcoming and kind, and they train incredibly hard to stay in top form . They would love your support and certainly deserve it:)
If you haven’t seen this show yet, you should get on it ASAP. Tickets for the final week are available here:
Below, a few photos I snapped while watching. I’m so gutted I didn’t bring a proper camera!!
My friend Lucy and I have already agreed we’re taking some sort of circus class together next year. It has to be next year, because there are a lot of sit ups and yoga to be done between now and then:/
Y’know, just hanging upside down on some ropes and hula hooping. At work.
The first act with Katrina and Matt was my favourite. They made everything look so effortless and graceful.
Apparently, this thing is called “the bowl.”
It looks brutal. Beautiful, but brutal.

The show finishes in a funny fire breathing chicken dance sort of thing, complete with angle grinders that shoot sprays of sparks.
As you do.
GO SEE THIS THING!
