Circa Contemporary Circus in LA

At the forefront of the new wave of contemporary Australian circus, Circa Contemporary Circus push the boundaries of movement, dance and theatre to create a beautiful hybrid which redraws the limits to which circus can aspire.

On January 23, Musco Center for the Arts will host the Circa Contemporary Circus; a performance created by circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz in collaboration with composer and arranger Quincy Grant.

Against a stark black wall, akin to a physical poem, the acrobats of the Australian company will perform their “Circa Ensemble: Il Ritorno” to Monteverdi’s opera Il Ritorno d’Ulisse in Patria, played and sung by a live chamber ensemble.
