The Return

London International Mime Festival

The awe-inspiring power, riveting virtuosity and creative heart of Circa’s acrobatics. The sublime soul of Monteverdi’s operatic music. From the Australian company that has transformed contemporary circus comes another genre-defying show, celebrating the expressive possibilities of the human body pushed to extremes.

This new work for the Barbican signals the return of a star ensemble whose past two productions – the sell-out How Like An Angel followed by the remarkable Opus –have enthralled London audiences. Akin to a physical poem, the staging sees six highly skilled artists precariously lift, hold, levitate and fall, their movements driven by the twin forces of desire and absence.
