Winner of the 2014 Viva La Novella Prize From Rio to Oostend to Amsterdam and beyond, a troupe of acrobats travel the world, performing miracles in the air, enthralling audiences. In between gigs, they drink, play and taunt each other. They get bored. They get up to no good. Then they jump on a plane to do it all again somewhere else. Sideshow is a hilarious and rollicking take on the thrill and drudgery of a life on the road and on what it takes to perform day after day after day.
