S by Circa

Circa’s Helpmann Award-winning ensemble creation S is a full-throttle ride to the limits of the human body.

Based on the 19th letter of the English Alphabet, S fuses group acrobatics with intimate emotions. Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz was inspired to create an abstract work of power and joy – inspired by the curves, symmetries and plurality which are all attributes of this one letter.

On a floating white diamond stage, seven extraordinary acrobats bend, fly, contort and hang – sometimes alone, and others in a tangle of bodies. Dramatic acrobatics, athletic aerial acts and powerful solos are all infused with raw immediacy and beauty.

S features the world-renowned Circa ensemble with the intoxicating music of the Kronos Quartet to create a symphony of bodies.

“Yaron has elevated the way Australia perceives circus, both nationally and internationally. The extraordinary transformation that he has taken that company through… I mean remarkable.” – Cate Blanchett
