Circa

 

In this love letter to our species, Australian troupe Circa (Opus, 2015 Next Wave) takes us on an acrobatic journey through our shared humanity. Asking how much weight we can carry and who we can trust for support, 10 performers execute breathtaking sequences of circus acts, displaying physical and emotional strength as they manipulate, contort, and catapult one another in death-defying feats. With stage and bodies stripped to a bare minimum, Humans is an exhilarating survey of the many conditions of being human—and a testament to just what we are capable of with a little vulnerability and the help of our loved ones.
