ON by Circia
Layering complex acrobatic sequences with sharp moments of close-up intimacy, the Circa ensemble creates a stripped back circus of the hear that's uncompromisingly bold and unashamedly athletic.
Over the past two decades, Circa has forged a reputation as the most artistically audacious circus on the planet. With productions ranging from large-scale operas and vast choreographic spectacles through site-specific adventures and intimate chamber works, the breadth of its vision is unparalleled.
For the company’s latest show – On by Circa – artistic director Yaron Lifschitz explores the gift of weight that lies at the heart of acrobatics. The simple act of giving and accepting another’s mass is transformed into a profound meditation about beauty, loss and trust.
To achieve this alchemy, the stage elements are reduced to their most essential: eight extraordinary acrobats, a score by Melbourne composer Jethro Woodward and a striking lighting design by Paul Jackson. Layering complex acrobatic sequences with sharp moments of close-up intimacy, the ensemble creates a stripped back circus of the heart that’s uncompromisingly bold and unashamedly athletic.
On by Circa is circus at its contemporary best as thrilling as it is moving.
Shows begin today, July 19, and run through Saturday, July 22.
