“Upswing demonstrates the real possibilities that emerge when circus, dance and theatre meet and meld.”

Welcome to Upswing. Let us turn your world upside down!

Come with us on a journey, we promise to bring you back in one piece, but maybe with a slightly different view on things.

Circus theatre pioneers Upswing have swung and spun their way through a stunning array of multi-disciplinary performances: from old skool hip hop and young love, through an Olympic descent of Nelson’s column to the magical tales of bedtime. The aerial and circus world of Upswing is poignant, unpredictable, and eloquent.
