A powerful and deeply moving acrobatic encounter with Stravinsky’s "Rite of Spring."

In the first circus setting of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, critically acclaimed contemporary circus company Circa tightly weaves together powerful world-class acrobatics and dynamic encounters suffused with dark humor and rich tenderness. As the famous high C on the bassoon sounds, the stage explodes with bodies locked in a ritual unto death.

Under the direction of circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz, the Circa ensemble puts bodies on the line for Sacre in electrifying explosions of physicality and power. Circa pushes the boundaries of the art form and blurs the lines between movement, dance, theatre and circus. Since 2004, Australian-based Circa has performed in 40 countries before 1 million-plus people.
