Circus like you’ve never seen it before is set to star at Showzam! in February, when high-energy Columbian circus company Circolumbia bring their unique style all the way from South America to Blackpool Tower Circus.

The company of highly skilled and powerful performers boast an impressive skill set and the fearless grit to perform terrifying stunts live on stage in a brand-new show you don’t want to miss. LeftCoast, VisitBlackpool and SeaChange are thrilled to be bringing it to Blackpool ahead of its official premiere at the Roundhouse in London.Circolombia

Inspired by Columbia’s diverse communities, the show features 14 of the most talented performers from across the country. Blending stupendous circus with high energy dance and featuring an original soundtrack – this is circus like you’ve never seen it before.

All of the artists from the company trained and graduated from National School or Circo Para Todos (or Circus For All) that supports vulnerable and at risk young people in Columbia through circus training. The company includes some of the biggest stars of international circus who have been on an incredible journey to join this amazing company.

LeftCoast’s Artistic Director, Michael Trainor, said: “We’re delighted to be bringing Circolumbia to Blackpool in what we think is a first for the town. This really is a show like you’ve never seen before – an explosive coming together of killer circus and fast paced dance moves – it’ll knock your circus socks off so treat yourself.”

Councillor Graham Cain, Blackpool Council’s cabinet member for Tourism and Leisure said:  “We’re really excited to see Circolumbia who have a reputation as incredibly exciting and dynamic performers. This is one of the first of many exciting acts to be announced for Showzam! which is building up to be as fantastic as ever.”Circolombia
