Circus performer shows his tricks as part of Books by Tit for Tat


from Tit for Tat

Circus, fiasco and buffoonery with books.

Using comedy, farce and absurdist circus spectacle, Tit for Tat have adapted their show Books for online.

Expect fiasco and mayhem when you join Rupert and the team to share their love for stories in the most ridiculous ways possible. Parodying social extremes, current affairs as well as themselves.

Presented by four bedraggled book enthusiasts, locked away at home and forced between the margins, on a mission to protect literature. With their libraries closed and their beloved books being forced out into the streets – who will step up to be the hero these stories deserve?

e-Books! was recorded entirely at home by Tit for Tat during the first UK Covid-19 lockdown, in the summer of 2020.
