URBAN is a freestyle portrait of a society, incorporating both joy and violence, where dance and music are the safety valves of everyday life. It features the best of the Colombian National circus school Circo Para Todos.
Weaving a tapestry of personal stories, of rhythm and groove, this is the soundtrack of life and death itself. A true narrative of the streets of Cali, URBAN is based on the lives of the young cast; telling the world what its like in their reality, through their eyes, ears, and voices.
URBAN is a tale of confrontation and redemption, of gangs and individual freedom, of poetics and cruelty. Infused with live reggaeton and volcanic, wild, but perfectly mastered acrobatics – above all it shows that with passion and dedication you really can touch the stars.
"Sheer energy, raw... a thrilling, skilled evening, a show with real attitude" The Guardian
“this is going to be the show you hear about all month” The Edinburgh Spotlight
"Circolombia move with a balletic grace This was truly eye-watering circus...There is a visceral rawness that makes Circolombia so appealing and the antithesis of the technically perfect Cirque du Soleil. This is very much inspired by the lives of the people – mostly men – involved" The London Evening Standard
