DANCE
Sacre by Circa
Created by Yaron Lifschitz and the Circa Ensemble

Thursday, February 3, 2022 at 8pm

Presented by Irvine Barclay Theatre


Seen by over one million people in 39 countries, the Australia-based performance troupe, Circa, is at the forefront of contemporary circus, leading the way with a diverse range of thrilling creations that “redraw the limits to which circus can aspire” (The Age).

Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring has inspired dances and ballets for over 100 years, but never circus – until now. See the bodies of 10 fearless acrobats – highlighted by a technically and artistically stunning lighting design – hurl, twist, and collide in an electrifying explosion of physicality and power. These performances also feature a stirring new composition by Philippe Bachman that pairs with Stravinsky's classical music masterpiece. In this first ever circus setting of The Rite of Spring, Circa weaves together powerful acrobatics with poetic tenderness and raw emotion – penetrating the senses and stirring the soul.
