SEE OUR SAFETY MEASURES
Award-winning contemporary circus ensemble Circa takes us on a stirring journey of what it means to be human and of how our bodies, our connections and our aspirations all form part of who we are.
Created by Yaron Lifschitz, the stage is stripped bare as the vulnerability of a team of highly skilled acrobats is exposed. With incredible strength and integrity they connect each moment seamlessly with the next in a thrilling and heart-stopping performance.
Exploring the physical limits of their bodies as they are pushed to the extreme, they question how much we can take as humans. How much weight can we carry? Who can we trust to support our load? They lead us to reflect on our lives, our loved ones, the burdens we carry and the physical and emotional strength it takes to overcome them. Glimpse their humanity as they find redemptive power in strength and celebrate what it means to be fiercely human.
Circa might just be the most in-demand Australian arts company in the world right now. The company’s reputation for fearless, boundary-pushing new circus is borne out in every one of their shows, which combine physical virtuosity with an expressive humanism.
