Circa is at the forefront of the new wave of contemporary Australian circus – pioneering how extreme physicality can create powerful and moving performances.

On by Circa, directed by Yaron Lifschitz, explores the gift of weight that lies at the heart of acrobatics.

The simple act of giving and accepting another’s mass is transformed into a profound meditation about beauty, loss and trust.

The show is performed by seven extraordinary acrobats, and features a score by Melbourne composer Jethro Woodward.

Layering complex acrobatic sequences with sharp moments of close-up intimacy, the ensemble creates a stripped back circus of the heart that’s uncompromisingly bold and unashamedly athletic.

On by Circa plays at Her Majesty’s Theatre on 11 & 12 August.
