It's not often that you get to see something that is truly new and fantastically unusual. We are blessed in Oxford with a wide variety of genres and artforms which arrive on our doorstep and, like the morning milk, we can choose to dip in and out of as we see fit - a rare and precious privilege.
It's with some honour, therefore, that I incite you to go to the final night of Kin, by the quite fabulous Barely Methodical Troupe. Following on from their 2015 smash-hit Bromance, they bring more members to their illustrious troupe and considerably more scope to the emotional development of their latest piece.
Quite simply the most remarkable piece of performance arcobatics and dance I've seen since #meninabox and bringing reminiscences of the joyous flow and powerful stillness of works by The Jasmine Vardamon Company, Kin explores a world of love, loss, power and impotence, oppression and freedom.
If you haven't already got tickets, why on earth not? It's jaw-droppingly skilled circus, ball-achingly funny, and heart-wrenchingly sad. Surely a show that has it all.
