A STRIKINGLY intimate show about the vulnerability of a circus artist is coming to a Bridport stage,

Natalie Inside Out will be performed at the Lyric Theatre on Sunday, October 13.

It is digital theatre and contemporary circus creators' Natalie Reckert and Mark Morreau's only other UK date after a night at London’s circus space Jackson’s Lane.

Playful, beautiful and highly skilled, Natalie Inside Out sees world class hand balancer Natalie Reckert and digital artist Mark Morreau pool their talents.

Fusing exceptional circus tricks and interactive technologies, Reckert and Morreau playfully investigate the relationship between Reckert’s flesh-and-blood body and its digitally represented counterpart. They mix live acrobatic performance of challenging hand-balancing moves with extreme close-up slow-motion video and talk about the personal emotions, challenges and stories behind the thrilling facade. Morreau transforms Reckert’s live movement on stage into beautiful expansive graphic landscapes of the body on screen, showing how digital media can actually illuminate the mechanics, emotions and motivations of the human body. It has to be seen to be believed!

Those who saw Outer Circle from Berlin performing at The Lyric in March will remember Natalie’s incredible hand balancing as part of that show.

Natalie Inside Out has been developed with The Lowry and supported by Arts Council England, National Centre for Circus Arts Lab:time2 and Jacksons Lane, with additional support from Greentop Community Circus.
