It’s a cir­cus with a twist

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - WHAT’S ON -

DAR­ING, breath­tak­ing and cheeky, Circa is a new kind of cir­cus on a mis­sion to move the heart, mind and soul. Fresh from an eight­month residency in Ber­lin, the Bris­bane com­pany and show Circa is back in Aus­tralia be­tween in­ter­na­tional tours for a lim­ited run, which in­cludes a show at The Arts Cen­tre Gold Coast on Tues­day at 7.30pm. Circa’s brand of vaudevil­lian cir­cus bills it­self as ‘‘the ex­act op­po­site of Cirque du Soleil’’. The show in­cor­po­rates high-en­ergy sound and in­no­va­tive projections with ac­ro­bat­ics. Artis­tic direc­tor Yaron Lifschitz says the com­pany, fea­tur­ing 16 per­form­ers and three glo­be­trot­ting branches, is renowned for its ‘‘emo­tional in­tegrity’’. He says its tour­ing show is ‘‘sub­tly but par­tic­u­larly Aus­tralian’’ in keep­ing with Circa’s mix of ad­ven­ture with a cabaret twist and lar­rikin flair.
