The circus: a glimmering, all-singing, all-dancing spectacle. Clowns, fire eaters and contortionists enchant their audiences, but this is a circus with a secret.  Underneath the spangles, behind the music, something is wrong. The Ringmaster is moulding the attraction into something demonic, tainting each performer with a crack of his whip. Even the Prima Ballerina, his faithful right hand, can’t stay his anger.  Can a stranger to the circus loosen the Master’s grip? Can hope and love revitalise this cruel place? When demons dance, who can resist?  Welcome to the fun house.

Emerging Oxfordshire company Implexa Dance present The Unhallowed Master, an unrelenting tale of oppression, told entirely through contemporary dance.
