Designing a shipwreck high in the air! Shipwreck Circus

One of my latest projects has been designing the set for a new circus with Aircraft Circus in Woolwich.

The shipwreck circus concept came up after the closing night of the circus's previous show Madame Pain. "We need to have a shipwreck!" was the new buzz.

The idea of a ship has been batted around for a few years and Alex, the circus director, took the concept further. So now we're finally doing it!

The show features a large steel construction pirate ship hanging and tilting six meters in the air! It's going to be terrifying. I'm not sure I would have the nerve to go up it myself but I'm really excited to see what the cast will do. I love the unique creativity that Aircraft Circus always bring to a project.

The first show will be family friendly on October 31st in Wapping and performances in December at the Greenwich Circus Festival. (Greenwich daytime shows are family friendly, evening shows are 16+)
