The world’s most romantic ballet is reimagined as a circus spectacular. The classic Swan Lake is interpreted by Australian company Circa, who brings their signature physicality, cheeky humour and thoroughly contemporary energy.
Touching, funny and thoroughly entertaining, let yourself be carried away by this story of swans, ducks and princes.
Duck Pond is a tale of identity and the search for one's true self. Breathtaking acrobatics, mischievous humour and feathers await you!

★★★★ ½ Duck Pond may just be one of the most exhilarating and thought-provoking shows you will see this year



Circa Contemporary Circus is one of the world’s leading performance companies. Since 2004, from our base in Brisbane, Australia, we have toured the world – performing in more than 40 countries to over 1.5 million people. Our works have been greeted with standing ovations, rave reviews and sold-out houses across six continents.
Circa is at the forefront of the new wave of contemporary Australian circus – pioneering how extreme physicality can create powerful and moving performances. It continues to push the boundaries of the art form, blurring the lines between movement, dance, theatre and circus. Fuelled by the question ‘what is possible in circus?’ Circa is leading the way with a diverse range of thrilling creations that “redraw the limits to which circus can aspire.” (The Age).
Under the direction of circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz, Circa features an ensemble of exceptional, multi-skilled circus artists. We are a regular fixture at leading festivals and venues in New York, London, Berlin and Montreal with seasons at Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Barbican Centre, Les Nuits de Fourvière, Chamäleon Theatre as well as major Australian Festivals.
Find a Circa performance near you and discover why Circa has been hailed as nothing short of “… a revolution in the spectacle of circus.” (Les Echos).
We are committed to fostering the next generation of circus artists and run Circa Academy from our studio in Brisbane. We also run regular circus programs with communities throughout Queensland and around Australia.
As a champion of live performance, we were the Creative Lead for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games arts and cultural program.

Circa acknowledges the assistance of the Australian Government through Creative Australia, its principal arts investment and advisory body and the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
Duck Pond is co-commissioned by QPAC and The Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi, The Art House Wyong, Frankston Arts Centre, HOTA-Home of the Arts, Merrigong Theatre Company and Orange Civic Theatre.
