In Humans, Circa—one of Australia’s most in demand circus arts companies—tests the limits of the body's ability to carry the weight of life.

How much of life’s weight can the human body bear? Who can we trust to support us? Circa—one of Australia’s most in demand circus arts companies—tests these limits in Humans. With their vulnerabilities exposed on a bare stage in the intimate confines of Loeb Playhouse, 10 acrobats explore what it means to be human—discovering rousing, redemptive power in strength and learning how bodies, connections, and aspirations form who we are. Humans inspires introspection about our own lives and loved ones, the burdens we carry, and the physical or emotional strength required to overcome them. With fearless, thrilling movements that push boundaries and quicken pulses, Circa combines expressive humanism and physical virtuosity.
