The Hot Dots was the story of two hugely successful vaudeville performers and their spectacular fall from grace. Acrobatic balancing, physical theatre and film combined to tell this fantastic story, set against the backdrop of 1930s Music Hall.
We toured The Hot Dots more than any other show. It was a simple narrative, set in an evocative era, with really fun acrobatics. The result was a great piece of contemporary circus, particularly for people who haven’t seen new circus before.
