What exists in the space between traditional and contemporary? Where are the boundaries between circus and other art forms? This film takes us on a hair raising journey from the inception of circus to the present day.

Through the voices, acts and ground-breaking performances of some of today’s most influential circus artists, this documentary explores the magnificent, bold and ┬áboundary-pushing art form of contemporary circus.
