From Brisbane, Australia comes a bold new vision of contemporary circus taking the world by storm and rising to become one of the most acclaimed circus ensembles in the world. CIRCA is a blending of bodies, light, sound and skill, creating a place where acrobatics and movement meld into a seamless whole and fundamentally redefine the nature of circus as spectacle.

On Tuesday, April 23, 2013 at 7 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center’s Cohan Center, Cal Poly Arts presents CIRCA: 61 Circus Acts in 60 Minutes.  The show is exactly as billed – 61 circus acts performed in 60 minutes, pulsing with upbeat music and featuring multi-skilled performers who are the best at beating the clock. This is fast, furious circus fun for all ages (3+).

*** All child/student tickets are 50% off ***

“CIRCA has reinvented circus the way Cirque du Soleil did decades ago…but the young company is way cooler.” – The Mirror

Wherever Circa has taken its breathtaking, heart-stopping show, audiences have flocked to see the impossible happen. Watch as intrepid acrobats battle the clock and marvel at the astounding ways they bend, fly, juggle and balance.

Celebrating the expressive possibilities of the human body at its extremes since 2006, Circa has thrilled audiences around the world; the Central Coast engagement is part of Circa’s second highly successful nationwide U.S. tour.

Student and adult tickets for the performance range from $12 to $44 and may be purchased in person at the Performing Arts Center Ticket Office, Tuesday – Saturday, noon to 6 p.m, located on Grand Avenue on the Cal Poly campus.
