Vagabond`s Hat are an exciting new British Circus Theatre company, whose work fuses extraordinary Circus skills, theatre and live music to create performances that are joyful, stimulating and often surreal.

Kinesonic is set in a parallel world that seems to be living through all the years since the beginning of the industrial revolution at one time. We meet a workforce of distinct characters who are as odd as the world they live in. These include a questionable Victorian inventor, a twitchy 1970`s mechanic and a wannabe WW1 pilot. Their existence seems to revolve around one thing — Kinesonic, a machine fuelled by music and discovery. We join them as they live out a working day in this topsy turvy industrialised world that`s full of fantasy and possibility.

This scratch performance is the result of 10 days Research and Development made possible by Lincoln Drill Hall and Trinity Arts Centre, Gainsborough. During these 10 days they focused on the physical exploration of modified oil barrels, performance-based music making with digital, acoustic and percussive instruments, bubbleology, circus skills and character development.

Vagabonds Hat are welcoming any feedback, support and potential bookings for the main creation and tour of Kinesonic in 2014.
