Following a triumphant international tour including a sell-out run in Edinburgh, CIRCA comes to the Festival amidst a blaze of rave reviews and international public acclaim.

A brand new creation that remixes three previous works which have wowed audiences at Galway Arts Festival in recent years, CIRCA is movement at its most adventurous and dangerous. Combining acrobatics, dance, light, sound and video, seven performers move from highly complex tumbling sequences, to fast-paced flashes of great intricacy. Using a powerful soundtrack ranging from Leonard Cohen to Aphex Twin, this marks a new kind of circus, at once poetic, sensual and immense.

Circa's signature style combines physical beauty, formidable circus skills and an integral use of sound, light and projection. By fusing contemporary dance with circus, combined with a mix of new technologies and theatrical flair, they have developed a style that eludes concrete definitions. But what they do has amazed, astonished and thrilled audiences in over 18 countries around the world.

Breathless and breathtaking – prepare to be astounded!
