Circa

SUMMARY

While some productions use complex sets, the acrobats of Circa use only their bodies to demonstrate the most sublime skills imaginable. Not only are Circa at the top of their craft but Close Up shows the glorious power of the human body.

In an exciting world premiere, commissioned by Underbelly especially for their iconic purple cow, Circa (the company behind five-star productions Beyond and multi award-winning Wunderkammer) challenge everything you think about circus as they wrench back the curtain on a phenomenal show exploring adventure, playfulness and warmth.

Close Up introduces a unique level of literal closeness, bringing a new kind of intimacy to circus. Focusing on the isolation of body parts, four extraordinary circus artists will dissect the simplest movements, turning things we take for granted into complex abstracted genius, looking at acrobatic mastery at its most extreme. They will interact with the audience, bringing awareness to the audience’s own body parts. What does an acrobat feel like? How close do you want to be?

Admission: £18(£17)
