Colombian circus superstars Circolombia will be performing their brand-new show CUIDADO for the first time ever at the Drill House in Great Yarmouth, Saturday 11th December 2021. The performance will be followed by a South American themed Christmas party, where ticket holders will be welcome to stay after the show and try-out Salsa dancing and sip on some specially crafted cocktails.

CUIDADO is a high-energy, exciting contemporary circus show. It fuses together cultural identities and social issues that exist within South American cities and urban areas. It delivers guts, beauty, and passion, from the streets of Bogota, Circolombia. The company and show is being supported by Out There Arts and created at the Drill House, Great Yarmouth.

Circolombia was first born from the distinct need of professional insertion for graduates from Circo Para Todos (which means Circus for All) in Colombia, the world's first professional circus school for disadvantaged youth and supports at-risk young people in Colombia through circus training.

Today, Circolombia has received extensive international acclaim and has performed in many prestigious venues and festivals such as the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Glastonbury, New York Broadway, Sydney Festival Australia plus many many more.

Out There Arts is also the UK's foremost producer of new outdoor arts and circus work, with companies from all over the world making shows in the Drill House year-round - the UK's only full-time dedicated creation space for outdoor arts and circus with a worldwide reputation.

Joe Mackintosh, Artistic Director of Out There Arts comments: 'We're particularly excited to welcome back Circolombia to Great Yarmouth. They will be in residence with us for quite some time at the Drill House to rehearse and develop new shows such as CUIDADO. Audience members can expect dance and spectacular raw, infectious energy that comes together to make really exceptional, exciting circus.'

He continued: 'The Drill House is unique in the UK and it's guaranteed you will see things here that you won't anywhere else in the country'.
