If you loved Gravity & Other Myth's A Simple Space, then you must see Humans.
Ten acrobats take us on a stirring journey of what it means to be human and how our bodies, connections and aspirations all form part of who we are.
Circa are the most in-demand, contemporary circus company in the world right now, with a touring schedule that would send most heads spinning. It's not hard to see why. Circa's reputation for fearless, boundary-pushing new circus is borne out in every one of their shows, which combine physical virtuosity with an expressive humanism.
Created by Yaron Lifschitz, the stage is stripped bare as the vulnerability of a team of highly skilled acrobats is exposed. With incredible strength and integrity, they connect each moment seamlessly with the next in a thrilling, breath-taking and heart-stopping performance. Glimpse their humanity as they find redemptive power in strength and celebrate what it means to be fiercely human.
