In a sea of irreverent chaos and a world of knots, wires and spaghetti, Noodles is the surreal journey of five quirky characters and their relationship with the stringy food staple.

Aerialists, hand-balancers, wire-walkers, contortionists and magicians twist and bend the frontiers of reality. Noodles is a mouth-wateringly surreal dish served with a side order of family friendly madness.

For this project we teamed up with Maksim Komaro and Holly Stoppit, and together, set out to put a Circus into a Theatre not Theatre into Circus. With a very progressive and experimental application of the circus techniques we have created something beautiful, something abstract, something amazing, something totally different and something for everyone.

In a sea of irreverent chaos and a world of knots, wires and spaghetti, a surreal cooking show loses the plot and the noodles take over.
Created by Clown Director Holly Stoppit and the company with the crazy ideas of Finland’s Maksim Komaro, Noodles is fun, funny and fantastic, and features an international cast of top circus artists.
Aerialists, hand-balancers, wire-walkers, contortionists and musicians twist and spin reality in an original and inventive show that challenges your preconceptions about circus. Beautiful and completely mad!
