Australian contemporary circus company comes to Weis Center

LEWISBURG — Circa, a contemporary circus/cirque ensemble from Australia, will perform 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Weis Center for the Performing Arts.

The Family Discovery performance is suggested for ages 12 and older and has a run time of 85 minutes without an intermission.

Since 2004, Circa has been at the frontier of a new vision of circus arts by creating powerful works that challenge, thrill and delight. Featuring an ensemble of multi-skilled artists under the direction of Yaron Lifschitz, Circa’s award-winning works have been seen in 34 countries across six continents.

The work that they will present at the Weis Center is called “S” and celebrates Circa’s essential manyness — a physical ode to plurality that extends the possibilities of human strength and flexibility through the daring interplay of complex acrobatics.

The ensemble will fill the stage with a beautiful melange of bodies performed to intoxicating music from Kimmo Pohjonen, Samuli Kosminen and the Kronos Quartet.

Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling 570-577-1000. For more information about this performance contact Lisa Leighton, marketing and outreach director at 570-577-3727 or by e-mail at
