HUMANS 2.0 by Circa
ABOUT THE SHOW
A symphony of acrobatics, sound and light–this is Circa, the next-level Australian circus company flipping their way to Purdue University after a successful 2018 engagement. For nearly 20 years, Circa has been stunning audiences with jaw-dropping acrobatics. In Circa’s new show, Humans 2.0, performers climb and catch each other during a series of stunts that must be seen to be believed.
This performance is a tightly woven choreography of bodies by Circa founder Yaron Lifschitz, pulsing with music by composer Ori Lichtik and revealed in Paul Jackson’s dramatic lighting. Physical limits are pushed to the extreme. Gravity is defied. Don’t miss the show that Australian media have called “spellbinding physical drama” and “a seriously sensational spectacle.”
Humans 2.0 is commissioned by The Mondavi Center, UC Davis.
Circa acknowledges the assistance of the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body and the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
