- Timeout, Edinburgh

Three jokers—the daredevils you remember from school: That’s the Barely Methodical Troupe. Talented? Absolutely. Daring? You bet. Playful? You have no idea.

Competitions, winks, plenty of sweat—plus a jaw-dropping Cyr wheel routine. With an irresistible passion that only a generous dose of youth can bring to nonchalance, these adorable Brits engage in friendly quarrels with their impressive and dizzying feats. And they’ll have you laughing while they’re at it.

That’s not all there is to this dynamic show, which won an award at the 2014 Edinburgh Festival. Under the rippling muscles and shows of strength, these three friends let their uncomfortable tenderness show. Hidden beneath boastful confidence, we catch a hint of insecurity, humanity and friendship between men. A real bromance!

Circus disciplines:
Cyr wheel, hand-to-hand acts, acrobatics

About Barely Methodical troupe

The three artists behind Bromance studied at the National Centre for Circus Arts in London, and arrived there on very different paths. Charlie Wheeller—the Cyr wheel pro—has been break dancing since he was a teen, and his talent earned him a top-20 finish on So You Think You Can Dance in 2011. Louis Gift’s love of parkour led him to discover acrobatics and set the course for a career in gymnastics. For Beren D’Amico, his lifelong practice of taekwondo gave way to an interest in stage combat. Once they graduated, the three friends entered many festivals and finally collaborated to create Bromance.
