The (Not So) Quiet Revolution Of Kindness

Kindness can change the world

What’s it about?

In a society where many of us feel disempowered and unable to make change on a large scale, small acts of accumulative kindness can uplift, inspire and make change on an individual and collective level.

Random Acts of Kindness and Pay it Forward is our bold statement about how we can affect change in our own lives and the lives of others, through small gestures. Join us for circus, acrobatics, dance and movement as we show how small gestures can make a world of difference… and difference to the world. Co-created in September 2018, commissioned by Derby Festé.

“Such a great concept for a performance. I really enjoyed it. No better time than now to stop, lift our heads and connect with others on a human level”

Where can we see it?

This show is not currently available to book.

The show saw our integrated ensemble of physical theatre performers delight thousands at Derby’s International Festival with a display of colour, movement and a motif of physicality, acrobalance and circus. All accompanied by original, live music.

The (not so) Quiet Revolution of Kindness and the themes of the show were incorporated into the 50th Anniversary Celebrations of a local special education needs school in Derby, St Martins. Hubbub ran a series of movement and craft workshops with the school and delivered a preview performance of the show.
