A Very Modern Affair – Nikki and JD

Nikki and JD are an amazing pair of acrobats who’s work is as much Dance as Circus. They scored a huge hit at last year’s Edinburgh Festival with a show called Knot which scooped up a host of awards. They’re old friends of The Lowry – they’ve rehearsed and performed in our Studios, and once performed in our Gallery surrounded by Lowry’s paintings. Niki is originally from USA while JD is Belgian – this short film features excerpts from Knot and was filmed to celebrate the 250th Anniversary of the creation of modern circus. Sit back and enjoy it – and look forward to the day when we can enjoy live shows again…
