About the show

On roller-skates and in the air, two women revisit the interweaving stories of their past lives and loves - from the post-war optimism of the late 1940s to the domestic realities of the 1950s and beyond.

Bella Kinetica’s new production combines circus disciplines with traditional theatrical devices to create an innovative show that tells a moving story. With evocative use of recorded memories and music from the eras, alongside breathtaking physical feats, we will give the audience a new perspective on the enduring friendship of women.

The show is performed entirely on roller-skates. This gives the characters opportunities to represent physically the metaphors of their lives - spinning circles round each other, rolling in and out of each other’s lives - and sometimes entirely lifting off into the air.

About the company:

Bella Kinetica- Life on WheelsThe award winning contemporary circus company Bella Kinetica was founded in 2008 by Lisa Truscott and Jessie Rose, and specialises in aerial and roller-skating acts. They are one of the few all-female acts to perform a trick roller-skating act of this kind. Lisa and Jessie’s backgrounds are in a wide range of the performing arts, including music, dance and drama. This gives their work a theatrical edge, as they use character, comedy and choreography to enhance their work.

Over the last five years the duo has achieved critical acclaim by winning both The Stage’s variety act competition and the Emma Insley Aerial Creation Award, as well as development grants from Lab:time, and the Arts Council England.

It was a love of both aerial and roller-skating, which prompted the thought – what would happen if we combined the two? Could these skills be used to tell a story?
