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 Bucknell.edu/BoxOffice 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
