Circa on edge
IT HAS only seven performers, but the show feels much, much bigger.
Circa, the new show by the production company of the same name, sees each of seven stellar performers show off amazing circus skills in odd new configurations.
The show moves from highly connected acrobatic and tumbling sequences, through fast-paced intricate scenes to hauntingly beautiful closing scenes.
The whole mesmerising package is synchronised with innovative video and light projections and an atmospheric soundtrack.
"In the actuality of circus, in acrobatics, there is immediacy, a danger and a skill that is extraordinary," Circa's artistic director Yaron Lifschitz said.
"Circa is lucky because it is a circus, so it starts with these elements. It is Circa's basic script. Rather than add circus to choreography, they discover choreographic possibilities inside circus."
Circa will tumble into the Jetty Theatre on July 6-7.
