Giffords Circus: XanaduThank you for the days, Giffords Circus! For its 2019 show Nell Gifford's old school travelling circus takes us back to midsummer in the mid '70s as the troupe makes a welcome return to Chiswick House. Nell, Tweedy the Clown and accompanying acrobats and their band become hippies, hipsters, wild women and nomads for Xanadu, the show fuelled by flower power. Tweedy (always a highlight) adopts the character of a kitchen helper but he still has time to take his pet iron, Keith, for a walk. We're led through the tumbling and daring acrobat acts by a ringmaster in a sequin suit, Michael Fletcher - his Liverpudlian accent adding a touch of Beatlemania. Lil Rice, niece of Nell and daughter of Emma Bridgewater, adds a new act with her graceful cyr wheel and also has a lovely singing voice. All the acts, from the swinging trapeze to the daring Donerts, performing a pas de deux and vaulting act on horseback, are woven together by a storyline involving a policeman and someone who could well be John Lennon. They turn out to be the acrobatic balancing act, the Curatola Brothers. It's all wonderfully eccentric fun which makes you want run away with the circus - and you're invited to join them in the ring at the end for a frenetic, uplifting dance finale. You'll leave with a smile on your face and the faint whiff of patchouli over the candy floss - or did you just imagine that?

 

About Chiswick House and Gardens

A former royal residence and stunning example of classical 18th-century design, Chiswick House originally belonged to the "architect Earl" Lord Burlington, an avid traveller and lover of Italian architecture. The Palladian revival house assumes the guise of an octagonal domed villa, allegedly inspired by the Villa Capra "La Rotonda" outside Vicenza. More about Chiswick House and Gardens
