This is a Celebrity Series of Boston debut for CircaÂ’s CIRCA.
Circa is a performance troupe from Brisbane, Australia that currently consists of 14 members. With no elaborate sets or gymnastics contraptions, performers use their own bodies and mesmerizing skills to conjure classic circus showmanship with a touch of Vaudeville. CircaÂ’s bold new vision of contemporary circus is characterized by a blending of bodies, light, sound and skills. A place where acrobatics and movement meld into a seamless whole and push the expressive possibilities of the human body.CIRCA explores the modern circus: no clowns, no animals, no flames. Just raw human skill and acrobatic feats with ropes, aerial feats, hoops and trapeze acts.
Since its formation, Circa has created numerous performances including Wunderkammer, On Air and 61 Circus Acts. CIRCA is a seven-performer show, remixed from three of the CompanyÂ’s most acclaimed works. After lauded seasons in Germany, Edinburgh and London, CIRCA went on tour again in March 2010.
The show was created by Yaron Lifscitz and the Circa ensemble, and premiered in 2009 on an international tour. Yaron Lifschitz is the Artistic Director and CEO of the performance troupe. Lifschitz graduated from the University of New South Wales, University of Queensland and National Institute of Dramatic Arts, and has directed more than 60 productions of shows ranging from opera, theatre, and circus performances. He was the founding Artistic Director of the Australian MuseumÂ’s Theatre Unit, Head Tutor in Directing at Australian Theatre for Young People and has been regular guest tutor in directing at NIDA since 1995.
