It’s been warmly described as “Alice in Wonderland meets Charles Darwin”. Welcome to the wonderfully bizarre world of CIRCA! Beyond, the brainchild of director Yaron Lifschitz. There is a line between human and animal, between madness and sanity, between logic and dream… Lifschitz invites you to step over this line… and go Beyond.
Beyond is warm, surreal and unexpectedly moving. Blending dynamic circus acts like trapeze and Chinese pole with cheeky feats of strength and multiple bunny heads, set to a bewitching mix of show tunes, ballads and electronica, this creation delights and enchants.
Set on multiple stages within stages, small red-curtained worlds offer a glimpse of this rich and empathetic world. Maybe we are in a cabaret, a zoo, an asylum or a stage. Seven artists have gathered here tonight to express their inner selves and to connect with each other and the audience.
Over the course of Beyond we meet the artists, marvel at their skills, enter their personalities and emerge into a strangely beautiful and curiously tender world.
“It should be pointed out that this is a show that will appeal to youngsters, maybe not littlies but certainly anyone 12 and over. It’s accessible, theatrical, hilarious at times and also very moving, which makes it a pretty emotionally satisfying experience.” - Phil Brown, The Courier Mail
