On by Circa is circus at its contemporary best

Monday 6 March 2023

The Albury Entertainment Centre is proud to welcome On by Circa to the stage as part of its annual Theatre Season for 2023.

A chance encounter. A touch. An improbable connection. On by Circa follows eight strangers whose lives cross in the courtyard of an apartment block. Over the course of a single night they will fight, love, laugh and find moments of beauty and transcendence.

Created by globally renowned performance company Circa and cricus visionary Yaron Lifschitz, with a pulsating score from Melbourne composer Jethro Woodward, and striking lighting design from Paul Jackson, On by Circa is an unmissable and powerful new work infused with fierce humanity and exceptional acrobatics.

Circa Contemporary Circus is one of the world's leading performance companies. Since 2004, from its base in Brisbane, Australia, Circa has toured the world - performing in more than 40 countries to over 1.5 million people. Circa's works have been greeted with standing ovations, rave reviews and sold-out houses across six continents. 

Circa is at the forefront of the new wave of contemporary Australian circus - pioneering how extreme physicality can create powerful and moving performances. It continues to push the boundaries of the art form, blurring the lines between movement, dance, theatre and circus. Compelled by the question ‘what is possible in circus?’ Circa is leading the way with a diverse range of thrilling creations that ‘redraw the limits to which circus can aspire.’ (The Age).

Albury Entertainment Centre Venue Manager Brendan Maher said it was exciting to welcome a return visit by Circa after several years.

"The performance has a captivating storyline, and the thrilling physical component is the perfect compliment to our varied theatre season program," he said.

The show is just one of six sizzling new productions sourced especially for the Albury Wodonga community for the Theatre Season, titled Electrifying the Arts.

Albury Entertainment Centre offers a membership program with a range of great benefits, including reduced ticket prices for the Theatre Season, as well as access to The Cube and HotHouse theatre season shows... and much more!
