CIRCA is movement at its most adventurous and dangerous. The exhilarating and physically astonishing, Brisbane-based company performs its self-titled remix - a compilation of their three most acclaimed and engaging main-stage works – where explosive encounters, dynamic group scenes and achingly beautiful solos abound. Combining physical beauty, extreme circus skills and dance, seven performers move from highly complex tumbling sequences, to fast-paced flashes of great intricacy where precision and timing are everything.
“Knee-tremblingly sexy, beautiful and moving.”
- ***** The Guardian (UK)
The company’s sophisticated signature style fuses contemporary dance with acrobatics and an immersive use of powerful soundtracks, light, projection and theatrical flair. The result is a new kind of circus, at once poetic, sensual and immense.
CIRCA comes to the Skirball Center from Australia for their U.S. premiere with a blaze of reviews and public acclaim following performances at the Sydney Opera House, Galway Arts Festival, Dublin Theatre Festival and London’s Barbican. What CIRCA does has amazed, astonished and thrilled audiences in over 18 countries around the world.
