Created by Yaron Lifschitz with Libby McDonnell and the Circa Ensemble

From its humble beginnings in Brisbane in the mid 80s, when it was known as Rock & Roll Circus, Circa has become assuredly sophisticated under the guidance of Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz. The company has now performed in 39 countries, with seasons at Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Barbican, Les Nuits de Fourvière and the Chamäleon Theatre, Berlin.

Circa’s new production Peepshow is a post-cabaret fantasia with a nightclub setting. ‘It’s playful, it’s funny, it’s a bit surreal, it’s a bit sexy,’ says Lifschitz. Themes of gender and sexuality are explored, but it’s the sheer skill in the human pyramids, acrobatics and aerial stunts that will make an indelible impression.

‘One of the most entertaining, unbelievable things you will ever see’
