MECC presents On by Circa

MECC presents On by Circa

Before purchasing tickets, please read the Terms & Conditions.

A chance encounter. A touch. An improbable connection.

Seen by over one million people in 39 countries, Circa has forged a reputation as the most artistically audacious circus on the planet.

With productions ranging from large scale operas and vast choreographic spectacles through site specific adventures and intimate chamber works, the breadth of its vision is unparalleled.

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 circus 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.

★★★★★ “…a stylish, flawlessly executed physical essay on the human need for connection.”

★★★★1/2 “…the ensemble’s extraordinary strength, flexibility, timing, co-ordination and sheer trust in one another thrills and delights.”
