Adagio - Awkward Productions
An Awkward Production.
Written and Directed by Deborah Pope
Music Jonathan Crayford
Adagio, seriously sophisticated circus is a unique & NZ.
A syncopated fusion of circus and theatre, with an exquisite sound scape, Adagio is wonderfully funny, lyrical and thrilling, a Theatre de Complicite meets Circus OZ.
‘Not only is Adagio seriously sophisticated, it is also seriously enjoyable, thoroughly entertaining and a damn good night at the theatre. The traditional skills of circus and a contemporary theatrical sensibility'
The Dominion Post
