A new circus show devised and collectively made by Square Peg based on Coleridge’s epic poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. With thrilling acrobatics, song and story, Square Peg combine circus with theatre and dance – using group acrobatics and human towers, Chinese poles, silks, and flips and tricks to tell this beautiful haunting tale.

Square Peg developed Rime as associate artists at the Roundhouse and Jacksons Lane, it is co-commissioned by the National Theatre and produced by Cirquit Productions, with generous support from Arts Council England, Ideas Tap
through the Ideas Fund Edinburgh, Hangar Arts Trust, Aircraft Circus, University of East Anglia, Kilnco and Throughline.
