Courageous, ground-breaking, risk-taking.
Circa might just be the most in-demand Australian arts company in the world right now, and it’s easy to see why. Their reputation for fearless, boundary-pushing new circus, which combines physical virtuosity with an expressive humanism, is borne out in every
one of their shows.
In this stirring work, ten acrobats take us on a journey through what it means to be human. Exploring the physical limits of their bodies, they question just how much we can take as humans. How much weight can we carry? Who can we trust to support our load? They lead us to reflect on our lives and our loved ones, on the burdens we carry and the physical and emotional strength it takes to overcome them.
In Humans, the stage is stripped bare and the vulnerability of these highly skilled acrobats is exposed. Glimpse their humanity as they celebrate how our bodies, our connections, and our aspirations combine to make us who we are. It’s a seamless, thrilling and heart-stopping ride.
