A sharp satire on the world of contemporary circus, COMMON GROUND takes you behind the scenes of a creative, chaotic rehearsal room. In this spoof documentary, follow director Victoria Dela and comedy writer Athena as they search for a new Global Majority star to rebrand circus for the 21st Century. Watch 5 aspiring cast members audition and navigate the ups and downs of the creative process, all whilst showing off their skills in Cyr Wheel, Pole Artistry, dance, Chinese Pole and acrobatics. Mixing comedy, music and physical theatre, this mockumentary features a script by Athena Kugblenu and new music by Afrikan Boy.

Supported by The Space.
