C!RCA's special presentation - Opus

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.

The presentation will take place at the National Arts Centre (NAC) on Saturday, 5 May 2018 at 8:00pm.
