SHAKESPEARE’S New Place has never seen anything quite like it.

The Midwinter Magic Dance-Circus Spectacular is taking audiences on a journey through the contemporary gardens of Shakespeare’s former home in Stratford.

Performers from award-winning Leamington-based dance-circus company Motionhouse are bringing New Place to life through a series of exciting after-dark dance and acrobatics inspired by timeless themes of the Bard’s work.

Chloe Malendewicz, manager at Shakespeare’s New Place, said: “New Place was Shakespeare’s home during some of the most creative years of his life, and the space continues to inspire tremendous creativity and emotion.

Louise Richards, executive director of Motionhouse, said: “We are passionate fans of Shakespeare and are delighted to have the opportunity to use Shakespeare’s themes inspiration for this exciting dance-circus production.”

Midwinter Magic Dance-Circus Spectacular runs until tomorrow (Sunday December 17).

Visit for tickets priced £10 (£7 for children/concessions). Spaces are limited.
