Lord Mayor’s Celebrations Norwich

Friday 7 July 2017

Lost in Translation Circus will bring a climatic ending to the first day of the Lord Mayor’s celebrations as City Hall becomes a backdrop for a performance of Cirque Bordello. The building will be transformed with an image of a hotel projected onto it with performers abseiling down the walls and performing across the balconies.

Cirque Bordello is an exciting and very funny new show for all the family

Meet Madame and the staff of Hotel Bordello and their arch enemy the dastardly Banker who is conniving and scheming to repossess the hotel so he can sell it and make lots of money. As the cast of 6 highly skilled acrobats, clowns and jugglers tell the story of how the tenants battle to save their home and livelihood, Norwich’s very own international circus company displays a colourful mix of daring circus skills, physical comedy and theatre.

Cirque Bordello also features a specially written musical score by renowned composer and multi instrumentalist Roger Eno. Deeper social themes emerge but with thrills, gasps, laughs and drama there’s plenty for both adults and children to enjoy.
