The 6 cast members of Tender are intertwining their bodies on a steel cube apparatus. They are giving the illusion of nudity with shadows and precisely placed limbs covering each other. The lighting is in hues of purple and gold on a black background. The words "Tender Cirque X" is written on the left side.

Gentle and affectionate or sensitive and aching, what is it to be tender? Combining circus and cabaret, 'Tender' celebrates themes of love, desire, and vulnerability through a queer gaze.

'Tender' gives you permission to voyeuristically observe bodies weave and melt, from solos to duos to writhing group scenes that fluidly incorporate aerials and acrobatics exploring concepts of power play, sexuality, and intimacy. 

Watch as we disassemble gender constructs and dismantle binaries.

With multiple sell-out shows under their belt - this is one not to be missed.
