On by Circa is coming to the Proserpine Entertainment Centre, on Saturday, May 20, 2023.
On By Circa is circus at its contemporary best – as thrilling as it is moving.
After the smash-hits of Humans 2.0, Carnival of the Animals, and Peepshow, Brisbane’s globally renowned Circa returns with their newest creation On by Circa.
A chance encounter. A touch. An improbable connection.
On by Circa follows eight strangers whose lives cross in the courtyard of an apartment block.
Over the course of a single night, they will fight, love, laugh and find moments of beauty and transcendence.
Created by circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz, with a pulsating score from Melbourne composer Jethro Woodward and striking lighting design from Paul Jackson, On by Circa is an unmissable and powerful new work infused with fierce humanity and exceptional acrobatics.
The Age newspaper referred to the show as ‘…a stylish, flawlessly executed physical essay on the human need for connection’.
With Limelight, Australia, saying ‘…the ensemble’s extraordinary strength, flexibility, timing, co-ordination and sheer trust in one another thrills and delights’.
Circa Contemporary Circus is one of the world’s leading performance companies, performing in more than 40 countries to over 1.5m people.
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.
