Hello wonderful humans!
All of us at Cascade hope you had an amazing festive season and have been having an incredible start to the year.
The store in Edinburgh might still be closed, but we are still operating online and doing everything we can to bring you the best from the world of Circus and Magic.
You may have noticed that we have been a little quiet on the media front over the last couple of months. Most of our time being spent staying on top of the Christmas chaos, while still following local lockdown restrictions. As we have begun the New Year, and with the shop still closed, our minds have had a little more space to start drumming up some new plans and projects for the coming months ahead.
“Oooo, what can I expect?” I hear you wondering, well we’ve got more Tricks, Tutorials, Blogs and Product Reviews to name just a few, and some others we have to stay hush hush, super secret about.
With theatres and other venues staying closed for the forseeable future, live shows and performances sometimes drift a little more from our thoughts. Thankfully ‘The London Mime Festival’ has taken itself online this year. With a mix of workshops and free talks on offer, it has also made available some of the shows that have been recorded at the Festival, from over the last three decades, for free! While they accept that most of the performances they have shared are best experienced live, this is still an incredible opportunity to see some amazing work from artists all over the world.
While there is a rich variety of visual theatre in the shows that are listed, there are also some incredible Circus performances. Personal favourites include:
- ‘Pan Pot’ by juggling maestros ‘Collectif Petit Traverse’.
- ‘The Letter’ by award winning actor/mime/clown ‘Paolo Nani’.
- A very special version of the phenomenal ‘Smashed’ by ‘Gandini Juggling’, only ever performed 3 times!
Most of the shows are available online already, but they’ll only be there till 31st of January, so follow the link below and go watch them. Did I mention they’re free?
