With Circa the startling, mercurial architecture of the body (and bodies) is the beautifully unadorned focus. THE NEW YORK TIMES
With raw passion and aching delicacy Opus fuses the contemporary circus of Australia’s finest, Circa, with the dynamic music of Shostakovich played live by France’s Debussy String Quartet.
This is a melding of music and movement to sublime effect. Opus takes brave leaps into new realms and the result is awe-inspiring. This Perth Festival co-commission combines acrobatic artistry with orchestral charm. What is unleashed is a circus performance of astonishing force.
