Exploring the physical limits of their bodies as they are pushed to the extreme, Circa questions how much we can endure as humans. The artists take us on a stirring journey of what it means to be human¸ they lead us to reflect on our lives, and the meaning of our existence. And inspiring wonder. Making us wonder how knowledge, experience and power can transform a human body.
On the cutting edge of contemporary circus, Circa assigns the main role to humans. Dispensing with props, dazzling set design and renouncing animals, Circa’s cast includes exclusively people. Blending dance, acrobatics and circus elements, a team of highly skilled acrobats test their powers of endurance and perform remarkable feats of strength. Established in 2004 and based in Brisbane, Australia, Circa’s Artistic Director is circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz.
Fusing extreme physicality, consummate acrobatic skills and dance choreography, Humans delves into the mysteries of human body, its limitations, its beauty and transience. A gripping piece of physical poetry, Humans reminds us that human body is one of the most beautiful, most powerful, as well as most vulnerable organisms in the world. It is a spectacle driven by inventiveness, human body and ways of transcending physical barriers. A spectacle of raw corporeality in the service of imagination and art. A 21st-century circus. CIRCA.
