Mississauga: See “Humans” by Australia’s Circa at the Living arts Centre January 18
Wednesday, January 8, 2020
On January 18, 2020, The Living Arts Centre is excited to present ‘Humans’ by Circa Entertainment, the most in-demand circus company across the world in Australia. Tickets start at $55
To date, Humans has had 151 performances to over 89,000 people. It premiered on the 13th January 2017 in Sydney, Australia at the Sydney Festival. Since then it has toured throughout Australia as well as to Romania, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Italy, France, Hungary, Mexico, USA, Canada, Netherlands, Slovenia, Sweden, and Spain.
Ten acrobats take us on a stirring journey of what it means to be human, and of how our bodies, our connections, and our aspirations all form part of who we are. Exploring the physical limits of their bodies as they are pushed to the extreme, they question how much we can take as humans. How much weight can we carry? Who can we trust to support our load? They lead us to reflect on our lives, our loved ones, the burdens we carry and the physical and emotional strength it takes to overcome them.
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 and heart-stopping performance. Glimpse their humanity as they as they find redemptive power in strength and celebrate what it means to be fiercely human.
Commissioned by MA scène nationale -Pays de Montbéliard. Circa acknowledges the assistance of the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body and the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland. Ten acrobats take us on a stirring journey of what it means to be human, and of how our bodies, our connections, and our aspirations all form part of who we are.
