Get your Bromance on

There’s no such thing as a good Bromance, especially when handshakes become handstands and backslaps become backflips.

It’s the kingdom of the Barely Methodical troupe when the famous British acrobatic circus company bring their hit production, Bromance, to the stage at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Center on Tuesday 19th April.

This all-male trio celebrates all things masculine through a series of risk-taking physical feats that incorporate everything from parkour and b-boy dancing to trickery and circus favorite, the Cyr Wheel.

“Beyond its thrilling physical acts, Bromance is a witty performance that is a show with relationships at its heart. It explores the gentle and sometimes awkward bravado of male friendships,” says Erin Kennedy, Artistic Director of VDPAC “Their experimental fusion of contemporary dance and street dance and acrobatic styles create a new perspective on the material they create.”

Bromance debuted at the 2014 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the world’s largest arts festival, where the troupe won a Total Theater Award for their playful and humorous performance. Bromance was brought back in 2015 for the International Mime Festival in London and has since toured internationally.

For creators and performers Beren D’Amico, Louis Gift and Charlie Wheeller, one of the highlights of the show was their recent three-week run at the off-Broadway New Victory Theater in New York City.

“With this year’s SPOTLIGHT series of special presentations, we really wanted to pull out all the stops with compelling performances that show what’s possible with the human body,” Kennedy said. “Barely Methodical’s Bromance is the embodiment of what this series strives to be.

Tickets to Bromance are $40 for adults, $38 for seniors, and $35 for students.
