Circa Tsuica Review -

By Derby College Student Luke Briggs

Finding something that will appeal to everybody is scarce these days, but you’ll find that Circa Tusica is very close. Family fun might be considered to be an over used term for some events and not always entirely correct, but for this performance it’s an understatement. A special mix of talent, athleticism and humour makes it one of the best performances that I have seen in my lifetime and I can guarantee that it would be very similar to anyone else who watched it.

Circa Tsuica is the creation of Cheptel Aleikoum, who along with Circa Tsuica has been involved in creating many other different pieces, ones such as Le Repas and Le Bal Cirque. The members of Cheptel met over 10 years ago as they were studying at the Centre National des Arts du Cirque (National Centre for Circus Arts).They also perform Circa Tsuica at a venue in Huddersfield. The company made Opus 7 in partnership with Crying Out Loud who also make a lot of other productions that involves circus like performances; as well as a variety of other different things.

There were many things that I found to be very special about the experience in Circa Tusica, but as with most things you will always have a particular favourite. Mine was the bit that one of the members went around with a massive metallic ring going around in circles inside of it. The control over the item that he had was extremely impressive and what made it really impressive was to think that the ring itself weighed around twelve kilograms! At the speed that he was going at I didn’t think that he would be able to control it. Obviously there were many other highlights to the performance and I am pretty sure that other people will have different bits that were there highlights, but this was my personal one.

So after seeing it for myself, I can confirm that this is something that I could recommend for everyone that I know. It really is suitable for all audiences that you can think of and is one of the most enjoyable things that I have seen in a while, and probably in my life; I rate it that highly!

Continuing the circus theme - Déda are now producing CQ Saturdays: Street Circus. As well as being free, this event will be able to give you the taste of what the circus acts are like right before your very eyes. This means that if you are someone who has already seen Circa Tsuica and wants to see something like that again; Déda are now showing a circus act in the streets of Derby that will allow you to get a taste of what it can be like. However if you are someone who has not seen Circa Tsuica and fancy seeing some Circus acts to reignite your imagination there is also a place for you here and is worth coming to see!

So if you fancy seeing something similar to Circa Tsuica, or if you want to come and see something that will be able to see a proper circus act for the first time; come down to the Waterfall in Derby Market Place on the second Saturday of the month between May – September all free of charge.
