News: Jess Love brings And The Little One Said to the Spiegeltent

Acclaimed Australian circus artist Jess Love brings her award-winning macabre and funny solo show, And The Little One Said, to London for a limited run.

Former Circa! and La Clique performer Jess Love brings her Circus Australia Award winning debut solo show to London’s Southbank for six performances, filling a macabre playground replete with hopscotch, blood spatter, rollerskates and broken glass in this visually enchanting, funny and surreal show about the mixing the innocent and the sinister.

First performed in her native Australia in 2009, And the Little One Said also garnered an Honorable Mention for Best Circus Show at the Melbourne Fringe Festival, and a nomination for Best Circus Show at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, and has enjoyed sell-out seasons across Australia.

Combining high-level circus skills with pathos, humour and playfulness – not to mention an absurd interactive intermission, Jess Love endears as much as she harrows with her dark clowning and dirty acrobatic feats. Love said:

“I’m obsessed with the beautifully dark, I love to laugh, I think David Lynch is a genius, and Mark Ryden’s art is sublime. So I made a show that looks, feels and lives these things. I’m the girl the circus ran away from, and this show is what happened when they did.”


And The Little One Said plays the Underbelly Festival Southbank until 18 June 2017. For more information or to book tickets, please visit the website.
