The Chosen Haram

Summerhall Festival - Main Hall

Dance Physical Theatre and Circus

An award-winning queer circus show from an Edinburgh-born artist. The Chosen Haram tells the story of two gay men and the barriers they must overcome. Expect a heady mix of love, drugs and Islam in this unique and complex take on circus. Performed on two Chinese poles this show is emotionally candid with moments of humour and joy. There is no traditional dialogue here – It does not need it. 'Elevates a boy-meets-boy love story into something dream-like' **** (Guardian). 'Beautiful story, beautifully told' **** (Stage). 'Brave, thrilling and poignant' **** (Scotsman).
