Life Is A Circus

Dir. Joanna Elliott. UK, 2018. 1h.

In 2017, a group of people – some with experience of homelessness – created a play at the Old Fire Station in Oxford. This film chronicles that journey, from writing workshops to the rehearsal room and opening night. Shot over a year, it follows the group, consisting of people from a vast array of backgrounds, as they come together to make and perform an entirely new piece of theatre. Set within the dreaming spires of Oxford but a world away from the elite and privileged, it tells a heartwarming story of hope and adventure.

A Q&A with the director and some of the project's participants follows this screening.
