Joss Arnott Dance presents

Guildhall Square, Salisbury City Centre

Performed entirely around a unique 3.5m high percussion wheel, designed by Eleanor Bull and engineered by Rolls-Royce, this adrenaline-fuelled dance and live music production is a combination of rhythmical flare and heart-in-mouth choreography.

Step into a pop-up world of imagination and storytelling where boundaries are forgotten and anyone can be whoever they want to be. Join some of the UK's leading drag artists for an unmissable show featuring interactive storytelling, lipsync, dress-up, games, songs and a LOT of glitter!


Spitz & Co. presents
Les Gloriables

Sunday 26 and Monday 27 May at 11.30am and 3pm 
Market Place, Salisbury City Centre

A riotously silly physical comedy show, created by French/English female duo Spitz & Co. Inspired by Les Miserables, legendary French actress Gloria Delaneuf has created a life-changing piece of radical theatre - a call to arms. She has dreamed a dream, and her hapless assistant Josephine has promised to build a barricade. Expect a masterclass in resistance - French style.


George Orange presents
Man on the Moon
Saturday - Bemerton Heath

Sunday 26 and Monday 27 May at 11.30am, 1.15pm and 3pm
Old George Mall, Salisbury City Centre

George Orange is an eccentric clown and slack-rope dancer from Chicago. He has come via the Moon, and brought a bit of it with him. Watch as he performs comedy and circus routines including contortionism and bottle balancing, all set to music.


Apocalyptic Circus presents
My House

Sunday 26 and Monday 27 May at 12pm and 2.30pm
Salisbury Arts Centre

Welcome to My House. Come close and look in through the enticing doors and windows. If you are patient enough you might find out who lives here.  My House is a circus theatre experience for little people and their families.


Newton's Ladder presents
Sirin (Hope is the Thing with Feathers)

Sunday 26 and Monday 27 May at 12.15pm and 3.45pm 
Market Place, Salisbury City Centre

A brave rigger woos a nesting Sirin with roses, and during an aerial courtship their relationship of prey and predator changes. Through narrative aerial choreography two compelling performers create an involving and emotional impact through visceral and ambitious images that stay in the memory.


Stopgap Dance Company presents
Sunday 26 and Monday 27 May at 12.45pm and 2.30pm 
Guildhall Square, Salisbury City Centre

Featuring Stopgap's impressive cast of dancers, this 'Punkish' explosion is a celebration of individuality. Watch a clash of eras, a collision of partner-work and an outburst of fashion in this show which makes you question what is considered acceptable appearance.
