Sydney Festival presents


Venue Off Site Venues
Dates 13 January - 19 January 2017

A woman stands in front of the audience. Two arms. Two legs. One head. One thousand fears. A complex past. An unwritten future. Can she lift someone with her hands? With her teeth? With the strength of her will…?

In their edgy and refreshing take on contemporary circus, the artists of Circa regularly push the limits of the human body. This time their philosophy is that there are no limits.

A gigantic hit across 34 countries in six continents, Queensland’s Circa creates a new world premiere especially for Sydney Festival. Led by Yaron Lifschitz, Circa combines the sensibility and aesthetics of contemporary dance and theatre with phenomenal acrobatic prowess. Allow them to dazzle you with a display of the seriously superhuman.
