The act blackbird- shorten the rope was created by Beth Darragh (Bunoscionn), and blurs the lines between beauty and unease. The use of corde lisse within the act illuminates the exploration of hatching, discovery and finding your own way.

The act’s debut was shown in the Circusful cabaret as part of the Festival of Fools celebration for 2022. The full act is available to view here:
