Australian contemporary circus ensemble Circa returns to Boston with SACRE, a new work set, in part, to Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring. Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz has created a sensual production with moments of dark humor that explores humanity’s inherent sexual desire, our interconnectedness, and our relationship with divinity.
Using dance and acrobatic techniques, the ten Circa performers—through lifts, balancing, pyramids, and more—use their bodies as a canvas for the audience’s emotional interpretation. The acrobats’ feats are amazing, but they are the conduit for a riveting and meditative journey into ritual and community.
Please note this performance is recommended for ages 12 and up.
This production uses theatrical haze, smoke, and strobe effects. There are sections where the music will be loud.
