Events you won't want to miss
Look Up is promising to wow Worthing audiences with an exciting, playful and energetic mix of circus, puppetry and theatre. Look Up is a celebration of what we can see if we step outside our everyday lives and embrace the world around us. The show takes place outside on a self-supported custom-made aerial rig and explores the relationship between circus performer, puppet and audience. This family show will be at the Pavilion Theatre on Saturday, August 17 at 11am and 2pm. Look Up follows Robyn, a child puppet, who is fearless, playful and not interested in phones or work, but instead has a curiosity with birds and flying. Why is everyone else only looking down? They’ll never be able to see birds if they only look down. Have these people forgotten how to look up? Look Up has been commissioned by Without Walls, Brighton Festival, Out There International Festival of Circus and Street Arts and Theatre Delicatessen.
