From the Australian company that has transformed contemporary circus comes another genre-defying show celebrating the expressive possibilities of the human body pushed to extremes.
Akin to a physical poem, featuring the awe-inspiring power, riveting virtuosity and creative heart of Circa’s acrobatics, and the sublime soul of Monteverdi’s operatic music, Circa: The Return sees six highly skilled artists precariously lift, hold, levitate and fall as their movements driven by the twin forces of desire and absence.
This new work for the Barbican signals the return of an ensemble whose past two productions – How Like An Angel and Opus – have previously enthralled London audiences.
Please note, this production is recommended for individuals ages 12 and older.
