Heart-Stopping Circus Explores What it is to be Human

Source: Northern Beaches Council
Posted: 18 Aug 2018
Internationally renowned ensemble Circa Contemporary Circus will tumble into the auditorium of Glen Street Theatre with its five-star favourite Humans from 4 – 9 September, 2018.

The acclaimed production has been performed worldwide with seasons selling out in Italy, Belgium and Romania. They’ve also had crowds flock to their show at the legendary Glastonbury Festival and Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Created by Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz and the Circa ensemble, Humans will see 10 acrobats take the audience on a stirring journey that celebrates what it means to be fiercely human by testing the physical limits of their bodies.

Through a breathtaking combination of aerial trapeze, acrobatics, contortionism, impossible shapes and more, Humans challenges the audience to reflect on their lives, their loved ones and the burdens they carry.

With incredible strength and integrity, the acrobats connect each moment seamlessly with the next, in a thrilling and heart-stopping performance that explores how our bodies, our connections and our aspirations all form part of who we are.

Circa Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz said Humans was a powerful, joyous and immediate work.

“The show has been met with great success internationally and we cannot wait to present it at Glen Street Theatre,” Mr Lifschitz said.

Circa has grown to become a phenomenal success across 39 countries, with its edgy and refreshing take on circus combined with acrobatic virtuosity and the sensibility of contemporary dance and theatre.

Humans is commissioned by MA scène nationale - Pays de Montbéliard.
