Bromance by Barely Methodical Troupe brings 'Bro Circus' to Udderbelly

A fine Bromance
Circus debutantes Barely Methodical Troupe

It's always great to see young talent making their own work, and that's the case with Bromance, the debut show by acrobatic trio Barely Methodical Troupe.

Louis Gift, Beren D'Amico and Charlie Wheeller met at the National Centre for Circus Arts and won the first Circus Maximus competition, which gave them the Arts Council funds to create this show at last year's Edinburgh Festival.

Bromance, which explores male friendship, will tour from May 6 before pitching up at London's Udderbelly Festival from 24 June to 19 July.

With 'bro country' big in America - and coming to the C2C festival at the O2 in London next month, could BMT have created the big top equivalent: Bro Circus?
