LOOK UP Brings Circus, Puppetry and Theatre to Worthing
Look Up is a celebration of what we can see if we step outside of our everyday lives, and embrace the world around us. The show takes place outside on a self-supported custom-made aerial rig and explores the relationship between circus performer, puppet and audience. This fantastic family show will be at the Pavilion Theatre on Saturday 17 August at 11:00am and 2:00pm.Look Up follows Robyn, a child puppet, who is fearless, playful and not interested in phones or work, but instead has a curiosity with birds and flying. Why is everyone else only looking down? They'll never be able to see birds if they only look down. Have these people forgotten how to look up?
