SUMMARY

Fresh from the world premiere of Closer in London, internationally acclaimed, multi-award winning circus company Circa (The Return, Barbican) return to Edinburgh’s George Square to dazzle and amaze. Join five astounding performers in Closer as they reveal breath-taking, up-close acrobatics in this elegant and intimate encounter of sophisticated fun.

Circa are known for presenting circus without spectacle: Closer looks at the authenticity of the performers as they confound expectations and prompt an emotional connection with the audience. The strength of their relationships is paramount here as they support and aid each other. This beautiful and quirky show takes us on a magical and delicate journey.

Closer transforms objects and motifs from everyday life that we wouldn’t normally even consider. As the masterful acrobats gracefully ascend a tower of chairs, our hearts skip a beat and we feel something without knowing what we’re feeling.

Admission: £11.50 – £18.50(£17.50)
