Crashed & The Science of Falling


Presented by CIRCA. Performed by CIRCA Zoo.

CIRCA Zoo is a youth troupe of 10 to 19 year olds, re-imagining circus in their own way. They train with some of Australia’s best circus performers while simultaneously devising work.

The Science of Falling: a new work exploring the graceful struggle of falling from one space to another, from one moment to the next and from one lifestyle to another. A serene balance of circus skill and contemporary story telling.

Crashed: a world of junk, trash and graffiti. Part circus, part performance installation. An ensemble of twelve young performers collaborated to create a circus performance of the bizarre and beautiful.
