Collectif and then: Fram & Dunt

You may remember Francesca as the hair hang artist in No Show by Ellie Dubois during our Women & Circus season. This season she returns, alongside her Dad.

Dunt aka Dad aka Joe Hyde, is a 60 year old man who until now has been working in IT as a security consultant. One year ago Fram aka daughter aka hair hang artist Francesca Hyde asked him to run away with her to the circus, despite him having no previous circus experience. Her secret mission: to get him to quit his job and bring him to the stage that he has always dreamed of.

To her surprise he said yes and Dunt left his job. But life as an artist is a lot less glamorous than that of an IT security consultant: the pay is low and inconsistent, the work has been harder and much more physical than he expected, the life is unstable and the tempting glow of the computer screen is hard to ignore. Join us as we run away to the circus with Francesca and her Dad in their adventurous tale!

What made this show special was the warmth of the two performers… Entertaining and amusing
