St Bartholomew-the-Great


Please queue for returns (cash sales only) on the door of St Bartholomew the Great this evening

Six acrobats ascend, contort and tumble in an ethereal display of physical daring, accompanied by a live performance of sacred song. Sublime music soars as bodies are pushed to their limits amid the architectural grandeur of a historic London church.

Circa’s exhilarating brand of contemporary circus meets the exquisite sound of I Fagiolini in a show designed to celebrate the atmosphere of St Bartholomew the Great. Navigate its spaces to follow awe-inspiring feats of strength and movement lifted by the harmonies of choral repertoire drawn from the 11th to 20th centuries.

How Like An Angel is the first collaboration between UK-based vocal ensemble I Fagiolini and Australian company Circa.
