The Ukiyo

Join us in The Ukiyo Tent, our newest and biggest 180 capacity circus tent, as we present a series of fabulously chaotic, diverse and poignant performances, strictly for grown-ups. The word Ukiyo is Japanese for "The Floating World". The inspiration for much of Japan's greatest art, the Floating World refers to the collective pleasure-seeking quarters of urban Edo (modern day Tokyo) life. It was a time of never before known peace and prosperity where culture flourished and the common people could enjoy theatre, music, dance... and some less virtuous forms of entertainment perhaps. Step inside to be wowed, to blush, to laugh, to sing-along and feel yourself come alive.
