Illusion, magic, make-believe and trompe-l'œil comes to the Queen Elizabeth Hall this week with a summer season of Cirque Nouveau in the shape of Le Cirque Invisible, the fantastical, fun production last seen in London in 1996 from Jean-Baptiste Thierrée and Victoria Chaplin (yes, the surname might ring a bell).
There's so much going on right now that we can't get a reviewer to the show. We need your help! If you'd like to go and see the Cirque with a friend for free on either Friday 7 or Saturday 8 August, email firstname.lastname@example.org now and tell us why you've always wanted to join the circus. We'll pick the best answer by Tuesday evening and email you to let you know. If you're selected, just email us afterwarsd saying what you thought of the thing. We don't mind if it's purple prose or just breathless notes - what you think and feel about the thing is what's important.
Le Cirque Invisible runs Tuesday 4 - Sunday 23 August at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, 2.30pm (matinee Wednesday and Sunday) 7.30pm, Tickets: £28 / £22 /£15
