Lost in Translation’s core company will be complemented by three stellar circus artists for the UK tour of Luminosa alongside local guest artists at each venue. Guinness World record holder, strong man Massimiliano Rossetti will perform the rarely seen Korean Cradle with his acro partner and highly ranked junior gymnast Roisin Morris. As Artistic Director of Lost in Translation, Rossetti will join forces with Adrian Berry (Artistic Director of Jacksons Lane) to direct Luminosa, a brand-new circus cabaret for the 21st Century.
On stage with Massimiliano Rossetti and Roisin Morris will be dazzling aerialist Tilly Mae, aerial hoop artist Danielle Summer, foot juggler Valerie Jauregui and extraordinary straps performer Holly Downey. Joining the Lost in Translation crew will be three incredible performers – Sadiq Ali on Chinese pole, Zaki Musa on flying pole and Joana Dias on aerial hoop.
Other artists will rotate into the show throughout the tour including Lost in Translation co-founder Annabel Carberry bringing her flair and style to hula hoops, Lawrence Swaddle with his talented acrobatics and handstand artist and high-level artistic gymnast Tasha Rushbrooke.
With live music by Peter Reynolds (composer for acclaimed show Hogwallops), these incredible circus artists will present a sizzling, scintillating night of daring feats with fun and fantastic performance in this feel-good show from some of the very best of British and international circus artists.
The company will work with Extraordinary Bodies and Upswing to employ a revolving cast of freelance circus artists and creatives throughout the tour. Keeping the show adaptable and relevant, local guest artists will join the core cast of seven for each venue giving it a bespoke edge. Luminosa will take many guises on tour: Little Luminosa will offer a special daytime version of the cabaret show for all the family while some venues will also host an experimental late night show with a more risqué feel and post-show DJs.
Artists will lead free circus outreach programmes in areas of social deprivation throughout the tour.
Luminosa is touring from September 2021
