Leviathan

Presented by Circa & Perth Festival
The Regal Theatre, Subiaco

A Perth Festival commission
Presented in collaboration with Co:3 Australia, MAXIMA Circus and CircusWA

Circa’s internationally-renowned ensemble joins with a local cast of circus performers, professional dancers and young people for a world premiere circus event. The art of circus is taken in an exciting new direction as 36 performers hang from a grid suspended in the air and propel themselves across the stage, tumbling, balancing and soaring together.

Leviathan connects the local with the global and the emerging with the visionary in an exhilarating circus experience directed by Yaron Lifschitz. The dramatic power and extreme skill of Circa’s trademark acrobatics thrillingly expose the tension between the mass and the individual in an epic theatrical event that is both deeply moving and physically stunning.
