A Different Kind Of Circus Comes To Santa Monica From Australia:

From Brisbane, Australia, comes Circa – a bold vision of contemporary circus performance that has quickly risen to become one of the most acclaimed circus ensembles in the world.

Circa performs on Santa Monica’s The Broad Stage tonight and Saturday, March 15 at 7:30 pm.

Critics around the world have raved about its shows, calling the work “stunning … exquisite … heart stopping… electrically charged.”

Circa returns to the U.S. this year for its fourth nationwide tour after receiving international acclaim. Under the artistic direction of Yaron Lifschitz, the troupe combines astonishing physical mastery with poetic resonance and pushes the boundaries between circus theatrics and dance.

“Hundreds of cities around the world have risen to their feet in celebration of Circa and we are delighted to welcome them to Santa Monica,” said Dale Franzen, Director of The Broad Stage. “The blending of bodies, light, sound, and skills meld into a seamless whole that redefines the nature of circus.”

Circa presents a breathless cocktail of acrobatics, dance, and cabaret paired with an immersive use of sound, light, and projection.

The company’s multi-talented performers reveal the outstanding strength and beautiful architecture of the human body in a risk-taking performance that London’s Guardian calls “breathtaking, beautiful, and sexy.”

As artistic director and CEO of Circa, Yaron Lifschitz has helped redefine the idea of a circus into something artistic, emotional, and challenging.

The company pays homage to the classic circus while sharing its new vision of theatrical, multimedia, boundary-pushing productions.

At its Broad Stage debut, Circa will perform its self-titled show which has been described as its most accessible and engaging work. The large-scale show was originally remixed from three of the company’s most acclaimed works, but it continually evolves.¬

The Eli & Edythe Broad Stage is located at 1310 11th Street, Santa Monica. Tickets are priced $47-$75.
