Simple Cypher – Roll Up, Roll Up
Prepare to be amazed by Roll Up, Roll Up as Simple Cypher perform explosive tricks with effortless agility within a large, spinning steel ring known as a Cyr Wheel. This skilled duo combines freestyle Hip Hop and acrobatics with juggling in an innovative and original way in this playful production.
Simple Cypher fuse Hip Hop and circus to create dynamic, uplifting experiences which dissolve the stereotypes that divide us; shattering divisions between race, education and class. Simple Cypher is a company built through the foundations of Hip Hop and circus, founded in 2016 by Kieran Warner and Chris Thomas. Style, originality and unity are key fundamentals of hip hop culture and have had a profound influence on shaping the company’s recognisable fusion of choreography, juggling and Cyr wheel. Since forming, the company has had the pleasure of collaborating with a host of Hip Hop and circus artists and presenting work to audiences at festivals across the UK and Europe.
Roll Up, Roll Up was created with support from the National Centre for Circus Arts, Swindon Dance, Breakin’ Convention and The Deutche Bank Awards for Creative Enterprise.
