Contemporary circus Company Here and Now bring Perhaps Hope to Castlemaine. Winner of the ‘Original New Circus’ award on its debut at Melbourne Fringe Festival 2015, Perhaps Hope has been praised by critics and audiences alike for its extreme beauty and courage.
Drawing inspiration from chaos theory, biomimicry and current social commentary, Company Here and Now add their voice to the politico-scientific debate on the global climate challenge. Armed with extraordinary physical skill, striking imagery and relentless optimism, Perhaps Hope dares us to believe that we can overrule inertia and ‘save the planet’, one exquisite design idea at a time.
‘Perhaps Hope is what circus should be. There are no gimmicks or anything to hide behind. Stone and Van Berkel not only keep themselves exposed to our scrutiny but also expose the cracks in our environment. A show that needs to be seen.’
