Circa – “S”

published on 15 July 2014

 

““ S”” WILL TEST ANY PRECONCEIVED IDEAS YOU MAY HAVE ABOUT THE PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS OF THE HUMAN BODY.”

— Australian Stage

 

“S” IS SINUOUS, SEDUCTIVE, THEATRE – SOPHISTICATED, SENSUAL AND SAVAGE.

Following the huge success of Wunderkammer in 2013, “S” explores the possibilities of human strength and flexibility through a daring interplay of complex acrobatics. A physical ode to the human body and spirit, “S” is raw energy, dazzling in its intensity.

Inspired by the shape, grammatical functions and sound of the 19th letter of the alphabet, “S” fills the stage with performers at their physical and emotional limits.

A mélange of bodies perform to intoxicating music from Kimmo Pohjonen, Samuli Kosminen and the Kronos Quartet; their sinuous movement at one with the pace and rhythm of the score.

Fresh from a 2013 world tour, Circa’s critically acclaimed “S” has been described as “brilliant limitless…contemporary…and astonishing.”
