Testing the limits of their art form, internationally acclaimed Australian innovators Circa blur the lines between circus, dance, movement and theatre in works that are visually and emotionally arresting. In Opus, 14 astonishingly acrobatic dancers move from dislocated stillness to violent explosions, morphing into fantastic geometries of bodies soaring through space.

Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich’s passionate and deeply moving quartets – performed live on stage by France’s internationally acclaimed Debussy String Quartet – form the musical and dramatic spine of a red-hot fusion of extreme acrobatics, lyrical movement and group choreography.
— La compagnie australienne de renommée mondiale Circa met constamment à l’épreuve les limites de son art, brouillant les frontières entre le cirque, la danse, le mouvement et le théâtre avec des œuvres novatrices qui en mettent plein la vue et vont droit au cœur. Dans Opus, 14 danseurs-acrobates remarquables passent d’une immobilité désarticulée à de brusques explosions, esquissant une fabuleuse géométrie des corps qui s’élancent dans l’espace.

Les quatuors brûlants et émouvants du compositeur russe Dmitri Chostakovitch, joués sur scène par le Quatuor Debussy – ensemble français applaudi à l’échelle mondiale –, forment l’épine dorsale musicale et dramatique de cette ardente fusion d’acrobatie extrême, de lyrisme gestuel et de chorégraphie collective.
