"Strike" Cirque contemporain. London Circus Festival 2014.
Jackson Lane. Roundhouse.
Delve into the Kafka-like world of STRIKE ! where man breaks free from bureaucracy and the constraints of work.
Directed by Keziah Serreau and devised with a company of five highly skilled performers : STRIKE ! uses intense physicality and humour, innovative aerial structures and a deluge of cardboard boxes to blur the boundaries between circus and theatre.
The lives of the office workers are upturned, struggling to maintain a system that is constantly collapsing and colliding with their personal freedoms. The tipping point is coming...
Keziah trained as a Director at RADA and has worked with The Royal Court Theatre, RSC, Roundhouse, Sadlers Wells and Kneehigh. STRIKE ! is Keziah’s debut show and will premiere at Jacksons Lane as part of Circusfest 2014.
