“David Attenborough in tights and leotards … enormous fun” Evening Standard
A multi award-winning show that has wowed audiences around the world from a young and dynamic circus company.
Five performers balance, tumble, jump and fly, transforming their bodies into spiders, lemurs, tree frogs and birds of paradise. Set to live music, Fauna is a wholly immersive exploration into the similarities and contrasts between human movement and the instinctual, primal behaviours within the animal kingdom.
With high-level acrobatics that demonstrate the exquisite skill of each world-class performer, the members of Fauna each embody a distinctly individual animalistic character, utilising their specific traits in order to govern how they develop and interact with one another.
FAUNA is a multi-discipline acrobatics and contemporary circus company combining high level acrobatics and physical theatre with live music. The company began in 2016 and is made up of six world-class performers from around the globe; five acrobats who met at the world’s leading circus school, Sweden’s DOCH, and a live musician.
Fauna are performers Daniel Cave-Walker, Enni-Maria Lymi, Matt Pasquet, Imogen Huzel, Rhiannon Cave-Walker and musician Geordie Little.

Chapelfield Summer Circus, running from 11 to 15 July, is programmed by Lost in Translation Circus as part of Circus250.
CIrcus250 is a year-long nationwide celebration of 250 years of circus. In 1768 showman, entrepreneur and equestrian rider Philip Astley drew out a circle on an abandoned patch of land near London’s Waterloo and filled it with astounding physical acts. This spectacle was the world’s very first circus. All over the UK and Ireland there will be contemporary and traditional circuses, performances, exhibitions, concerts and events. The focus will fall on six designated ‘Cities of Circus’ with their long and proud history of ‘the greatest show on earth’. Norwich (together with Great Yarmouth) is one of the six alongside Bristol, Blackpool, Newcastle-under-Lyme, London and Belfast.
This event has been made possible thanks to funding from Norwich City Council, Arts Council England, Norwich Town Close Estate Charity, Geoffrey Watling Charity, John Jarrold Trust, Goodman Trust, Paul Bassham Charitable Trust, Snelling Charitable Trust, Charles Littlewood Hill Trust and The Ranworth Trust.
