with music by Philippe Bachman & Igor Stravinsky
Kreiert von Yaron Lifschitz und dem Circa Ensemble
Circa Contemporary Circus, Australien
Accompanying the performance, we invite you to a live digital introduction as well as an artist talk (in English) afterwards.
Ten artists and the riveting score of Igor Stravinsky – that is all it takes to thrill audiences all over the world. Circa present their German premiere of “Sacre,” an exhilarating new vision of the “Rite of Spring” that intersperses Stravinsky’s classic soundscapes with new compositions by Philippe Bachman. The Australian company tightly weaves together world-class acrobatics with complex and fast-paced choreography. This show features an explosive composition of bodies locked in a ritual unto death, yet it also suffuses this fatal encounter with tenderness and dark humour.
Since 2004, Circa has been at the frontier of new circus. They have emerged as one of the world's leading performance companies in this field – creating powerful circus works that challenge, thrill, and delight. Circa develop shows that push the boundaries of circus as an art form, blur the lines between movement, dance, and theater. The result is a unique Circa experience that moves the heart, mind, and soul. Under the direction of circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz, Circa’s “Sacre” electrifies with its raw physicality.
