For Barely Methodical Troupe
Directed by Ben Duke

Following the international success of their debut show Bromance, Barely Methodical Troupe premiered KIN at the Roundhouse’s CircusFest in 2016. It was met with standing ovations, 5-star reviews and a sold-out run. KIN explores shifting group dynamics, set to a dazzling soundtrack, asks how it feels to compete for love and attention, to take and to give up control. Combining acrobatics with dance, parkour and tricking, KIN is a fresh, experimental take on 21st century circus.
