The stage explodes with physicality and power as Circa tightly weaves together poetic tenderness and raw emotion with physical strength and world-class acrobatics.


Created by Yaron Lifschitz and the Circa Ensemble

Join 10 acrobats from the Circa ensemble as they bring Stravinsky’s seminal “The 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. 

Featuring a piercing lighting design by Veronique Bennett and a stirring new composition by Phillipe Bachman for the first half, “Sacre” penetrates the senses and stirs the soul.
