Circa (Brisbane)


'A masterpiece that sparkles like the finest champagne' Berlin Morgenpost

After their heart-stopping performance in How Like an Angel (Brighton Festival 2013), the exhilarating Australian ensemble Circa makes a welcome return to Brighton Festival with its bold new vision of contemporary circus.

Performers explore their animal instincts as they push their bodies to extremes, combining feats of breathtaking skill with Rubik’s Cubes, blindfolds, white rabbits and a dash of cheeky humour, all set to a soundtrack of ballads, show tunes and electronica. Small red-curtained stages within stages will transport you to a cabaret, a zoo or an asylum, as a deliciously surreal and surprisingly beautiful world emerges before your eyes.

This dazzling show has been thrilling audiences the world over – so join the hugely skillful Circa as they invite you to go Beyond for a performance of audacious showmanship.

'Audiences have come to expect the earth from Circa... Beyond gives them the moon as well' The Stage
