Green Man Festival
For the past four years Citrus have had the pleasure of creating bespoke ensemble shows for this much-loved music festival in the Brecon Beacons. An open-air stage with spectacular backdrops sees us Co-Produce the performing arts programme and headline with a fiery spectacle each evening. As part of our “New Professionals” scheme, this project sees circus students working alongside professional dancers and aerialists to create a performance for an audience of thousands - a highlight of the festival.
GREEN MAN 2018 - “Between The Devil and The Deep” is this years creation and will be performed at dusk each night at the Back of Beyond stage.
We are teaming up with students from Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama and some of the team from South Wales-based Splatch Circus to work alongside our regular collaborators, Circomedia to give students the chance to flex their creative muscle.

YEAR OF MYTHS AND LEGENDS (2017)
For our third year at the festival, the Back of Beyond stage moved across to the main field where we created “Gorge”, a magical folk tale inspired by the local legend of Llyn Cwm Llwch. Created with Circomedia, Ballet Cymru and a whole host of professional circus artists.
YEAR OF ADVENTURE (2016)
For our second year at Green Man we created “Precipice”; an epic adventure of climbing the World’s tallest mountain inspired by Crickhowell’s famous son - Sir George Everest. Created with students from Circomedia working alongside circus professionals.
