'One of the summer's family treats... makes you want to run away and join the circus' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Joyous, homespun circus show' (The Guardian)
'Thrillingly dangerous... Rousing live traditional music and singing underpin the scintillating action' (The Stage)
'If I were running away to the circus, Alfonse would be my first stop.' (Metro)
'Utterly brilliant' (South London Press)
The UK premiere of a joyous, log-balancing, wood-chucking, axe-juggling spectacular from a family of lumberjack circus-performers.
Blending circus with theatre, dance, live traditional music and the folklore of their native Quebec, Cirque Alfonse take the audience on a wild ride of gravity-defying acrobatics and thrilling tricks with metal saws, axes and logs from the family farm.
Including phenomenal feats of agility and strength, Timber! stars the whole family from 66-year-old grandad Alain to two-year-old grandson Arthur.
Founded in 2005, members of Cirque Alfonse have worked with some of the world's most renowned companies including Cirque du Soleil, Cirkus Cirkor and Les 7 Doigts de la Main.
