Collider by Circa

In the large Hadron Collider, particles are sped up close to light speed and spun around until they collide – creating energy and unlocking some of the deepest secrets to the universe.

In Circa’s Collider, choreographer Elise May spins a company of Circa’s acrobats within Torus – a large, sphere-shaped, clear plastic structure. As they gather pace, acrobatic encounters and near misses build in intensity- revealing moments of joy, intensity and powerful beauty.

You can catch Circa’s Collider as part of Club SCOOP! on Fri 15 and Sat 16 January between 6 and 9.30pm.

Presented by HOTA, Home of the Arts

This January we’ve got everything you want from summer in one sweet weekend at SCOOP!

For those seeking summer fun with a bit of sizzle as the sun sets, head on down to Club SCOOP! our evening program of zany sideshows, cocktails and craft beers, where the naughty side of circus and cocktails collide, including performances from the mighty Circa.

Or you can soak up the sun during the day and head lakeside for our epic line-up of ice cream and desserts with more world class circus, splash play and live music, and plenty more.

About CIRCA

“The mighty Circa” (Lyn Gardner, The Guardian)

Circa Contemporary Circus is one of the world’s leading performance companies. Since 2004, from its base in Brisbane, Australia, Circa has toured the world – performing in 40 countries to over a million people. Circa’s works have been greeted with standing ovations, rave reviews and sold-out houses across six continents.

Circa is at the forefront of the new wave of contemporary Australian circus – pioneering how extreme physicality can create powerful and moving performances. It continues to push the boundaries of the art form, blurring the lines between movement, dance, theatre and circus. Fuelled by the question ‘what is possible in circus?’ Circa is leading the way with a diverse range of thrilling creations that “redraw the limits to which circus can aspire.” (The Age).

Under the direction of circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz, Circa features an ensemble of exceptional, multi-skilled circus artists who have been a regular fixture at leading festivals and venues in New York, London, Berlin and Montreal with seasons at Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Barbican Centre, Les Nuits de Fourvière, Chamäleon Theatre as well as major Australian Festivals.
