“A grand masterwork that challenges the boundaries of dance, theatre, music and circus.” The Conversation (Australia)

“Rock stars of the circus world.” The List (U.K.)

Poetic tenderness. Raw emotion. Physical strength. Ten acrobats from the Circa ensemble bring Stravinsky’s seminal Rite of Spring to the circus stage. Pulsating with tension and infused with dark humor, this distinctive production from Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz confronts humanity’s interconnectivity, our inherent sexual desire and relationship with divinity. At the forefront of the new wave of contemporary Australian circus, Circa pushes the boundaries of the art form, blurring the lines between movement, dance, theater and circus. (Recommended for ages 12 and up.)

Presented in association with UCSB Dept of Theater and Dance
