Difficult to describe...
impossible to forget

Circa began life 18 years ago as Rock 'n' Roll Circus. Based in Brisbane, it has pioneered the re-imaging of circus as a brave new art form. Circa's work redefines circus, embracing the innovative use of music, multimedia, improvisation and collaborations with exceptional artists.

The Noosa Longweekend presents two of their shows with different audiences in mind:

The Space Between straddles the divide between circus art and contemporary dance. This internationally acclaimed, uniquely dynamic performance is something out of the ordinary.

Seen in 13 different countries, this powerful exploration of the spaces between and within people is Circa's most successful production to date.

With stunning dexterity, beautiful duets and gorgeous ensemble pieces, this work seamlessly integrates heart-stopping acrobatics, tumbling and trapeze skills with dance movement and physical theatre styles.

Unlike in a traditional circus, these extraordinary feats of physical prowess are about more than just the spectacle. Set to a soundtrack of Jaques Brel, Bach and contemporary music and visually drenched in layers of projections, Circa creates an entertaining, gymnastically eloquent narrative.

The Space Between is the perfect experience for anyone who hungers for something new - or loves to be amazed.

46 Circus Acts in 45 minutes

A family banquet of circus fun

46 Circus Acts in 45 minutes - the name says it all - is a breathless barrage of pure circus pandemonium for the whole family. Be amazed as Circa's intrepid acrobats battle the clock and their own limits as they tumble, fly, contort, juggle and balance, breaking most of the laws of physics and endurance along the way.

Circa's fantastic circus skills have wowed audiences of all ages in the UK, Canada and in featured performances at Seattle's International Children's Festival, USA. This is simply a joyous spectacle and Circa at its most engaging.

"…fast and furious family circus entertainment."
