Physically exhilarating and touchingly poignant, Knot is the internationally acclaimed circus theatre work by Nikki & JD. These talented performers use breathtaking hand-to-hand and dance skills to tell the tale of an impossible choice: how can we be honest with ourselves without hurting those we love? Part of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase 2019, Knot is a finely crafted journey through the struggles of commitment, exploring the absurdity, mundanity and joy of a very modern affair.
Presented by Jacksons Lane, the UK’s leading supporter of contemporary circus, Knot tells the story of two acrobats, one gay and one straight, linked together in an unconventional relationship. Using delicate sensitivity and exceptional circus skills, Knot is an exploration of LGBTQIA+ identity and the important bonds of companionship. Knot is a funny and moving piece combining astonishing partner acrobatics, dance and storytelling to examine their own relationship, its durability and intensity.
