T A P E    T H A T!

Tape That is a 30-minute family friendly, charming, light-hearted acrobatic duet.


Two performers construct a visual world using colourful tape, object manipulation and partner acrobatics. A simple roll of tape transforms from DJ decks to a spyglass, and is stretched to create physical barriers and obstacles for the performers to navigate.

Tape That is a playful exploration of the world we live in; when challenges present themselves, just how many problems can be fixed with a few rolls of duct tape?


Tape That was commissioned by Applause Rural Touring and The Roundhouse, in partnership with FiraTàrrega’s Support for Creation programme. Also supported by Arts Council England.

What people have said...

Hands Down Circus’ show Tape That! was a massive hit at Surge Festival 2022 in Glasgow. Appealing to a wide audience, highly amusing and well crafted, the two performers bring to the streets a very slick show that is instantly engaging. Carys and Graham were an absolute joy to work with and we’d recommend their show to any festival looking for a guaranteed crowd pleaser.

Ruth Siller, Project manager at Surge Festival

The audience, young and old, were entranced by their skills, and the play between the characters they portrayed. A beautiful show, full of heart.
