Humans by Circa
Created by Yaron Lifschitz and the Circa Ensemble
Australian circus’s heartstopping show of body, space, force and balance.
“… poetry in motion” —The Times (UK)
Body, space, force and balance. In this heart-stopping nouveau cirque adventure that earned rave reviews on several continents, Australian circus artist/athletes test the limits of the human body. Forms fly through the air. Towers emerge and tumble. This virtuosic meditation on the body plays with the laws of physics, ratcheting up the tension between us and the space we move through.
