Circa takes us on a stirring journey of what it means to be human, with their acclaimed show, Humans. It explores the physical limits of their bodies. As they’re pushed to the extreme, 10 acrobats question how much we can take as humans. How much weight can we carry? Who can we trust to support our load? They invite us to reflect on our lives, our loved ones, the burdens we carry and the physical and emotional strength it takes to overcome them. The show is created by Yaron Lifschitz. The stage is stripped bare to expose the vulnerability of a team of highly skilled acrobats. With incredible strength and integrity, they connect each moment seamlessly with the next in a thrilling and heartstopping performance. Following the great success of their shows performed at TOHU, including Beyond and Opus, the artists from Circa bring us an intense performance that combines acrobatics and contemporary dance. It’s a great honour to host this internationally renowned company.
