14 August - 1 September
Merlyn Theatre

Following a sell-out season last year, Circa are back with a new heart-stopping production, Wunderkammer. This is circus at its absolute best, where the seemingly impossible combines with the poetic. Sexy, funny and explosive, Wunderkammer is a heady cocktail of circus, cabaret and vaudeville. In this white-hot spectacle, a diva melts into a rope, balloons and bubble wrap discover their artistic souls, while bodies twist and fly, transforming the very fabric of reality.

About Circa

See the Australian Story feature on Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz.

From Brisbane, Australia comes a bold new vision of contemporary circus.  A blending of bodies, light, sound and skills.  A place where acrobatics and movement meld into a seamless whole. A celebration of the expressive possibilities of the human body at its extremes.
