A big top is coming to Salford Quays this summer, courtesy of the acclaimed circus company Circa Tsuica. The French artists take over The Lowry Plaza for three nights, presenting new show Now or Never. The concept is inclusive – a kind of circus for the 21st century – with acrobats, musicians, and audience all playing their part. As the show begins, the performers mingle with the crowd, making and sharing Breton crêpes, before they fly, fling, and swing across the tent on trapezes, tightropes, and trampolines. All the while, they will be backed by 20 young musicians from Salford’s own MAPAS Jazz Band, who will be providing thundering brass rhythms.
Thu 30 Aug – Sat 1 Sep, The Lowry Plaza, The Quays, Salford, M50 3AH, Tel: 0843 208 6000, 7pm, £16/£13 (conc.), www.thelowry.com
