The Circus is in Town!

CIRCA, world-renowned for creating startling new ways to experience circus, is bringing their exquisite cabaret of the senses to Colac Otway Performing Arts & Cultural Centre on Saturday, September 6.
Wunderkammer is a sexy, funny and explosive cocktail of new circus and vaudeville where control, abandon, skill and humour, lyricism and anarchy, meld into profound beauty. Since 2006, Circa has toured to 28 countries across six continents and performed Wunderkammer in Berlin for an eight-month season before returning to their home city of Brisbane.
Circa combines seemingly impossible physical feats with a poetic sensibility; their vision of contemporary circus is a blending of bodies, light, sound and skills – a full throttle celebration of the expressive possibilities of the human body at its extremes.
During a week-long residency at COPACC, sponsored by Cape Otway Lightstation, Circa’s ensemble of seven will lead workshops, perform Wunderkammer, and four shows of their heart-stopping 61 Circus Acts in 60 Minutes. Intrepid acrobats will battle the clock, bending, flying, juggling and balancing in a fast and furious attempt to deliver 61 tricks in an hour.
Where: Colac Otway Performing Arts & Cultural Centre, Colac
When: Saturday September 6
