“Northern Stage has been a significant player on the Edinburgh Fringe, supporting companies based in the North of England to go to that festival. Now they are doing the same with the VAULT Festival. The Art of Cuddling and Other Things by circus company Circ Motif.”
“A piece reminding us of how important it is to stay human.”


“The Art of Cuddling and Other Things” incorporates high-level acrobatics, movement, dance, comedy, and physical theatre to explore topics such as loneliness, isolation and human connection.

Circ Motif is a North East based contemporary circus theatre company that combines high quality physical skills with evocative narratives, creating next generational story telling. This new innovative circus theatre company collaborates with artists of a variety of mediums to build strong ensemble work to deliver originality and diversity in their performances.

The company are in their first year of development but have quickly established themselves as “a company to watch” [Tracey Sinclair, Exeunt Magazine] within the North East arts sector and have proven popular with audiences with their “feats of poetic, jaw dropping circus.” [Audience feedback, 2018].
