Circolombia (UK/Colombia)

The visceral rawness, brazen attitude and high-voltage energy of Circolombia has put a rocket under contemporary circus.

Following a sell-out run at London’s Roundhouse and seasons in Paris and on Broadway, the troupe’s gritty, no holds barred autobiographical show Urban comes to Sydney.

Set against the backdrop of Colombian city Cali, it conjures the rhythms and character of dark street life and a world where life and death are inextricably linked.

With spine-tingling acrobatic feats and a pulsating live soundtrack, this inspiring show features an exuberant crew of highly-skilled young artists. In almost every sense the performers reach for the stars.

Suitable for 10+

This production contains strobe lighting and haze.
