Norwich’s very own Lost in Translation Circus returned to the city to provide some much-needed entertainment at their Circus Lates show.
With years of experience touring the UK, Lost in Translation Circus (LiT) are one of the country’s leading contemporary circus companies.
Chapelfield Summer Circus is well underway and with the temporary big top tent erected in Chapelfield Gardens, spectators arrived ready to be wowed by some mind-blowing physical acts and tummy-tickling humour.
As most of the country have been shacked up inside for months, there was an air of excitement and anticipation as the audience waited for the show to begin – which for most of the crowd was their first event since lockdown began.
Lead by Abigail Collins, the Master of Ceremonies, the night commenced as we were treated to a rambunctious and infectious mix of circus, modern burlesque and comedy in this adult themed show.

Not one for the kids, this 18+ evening had many the scandalous moment that left us all howling with laughter. Not only did we experience a performance from LiT, we enjoyed breakout choreographies from individual members of the circus, and other guests. They wowed us by defying gravity and pushing their bodies to the limit with incredible acrobatics and unbelievable strength and flexibility.
Every single performer was an absolute credit to the show and each talented in their own way. The ease at which they executed their art just made it that much more enjoyable. You’d be hard pressed to find anyone watching who didn’t wish they could pull off half of what we saw on stage.
