“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.

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 rising-star choreographer, Ben Duke of Lost Dog Dance company.   

★★★★★ “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) 

Knot is co-commissioned and supported by Jacksons Lane, Déda, Jerwood Choreographic Research Project II, The National Centre for Circus Arts, Arts Council England and Warwick Arts Centre
