Internationally acclaimed, multi-award winning circus company Circa (The Return, Barbican) return to London for their longest season to date. Join the five astounding performers in Closer as they reveal breath-taking, up-close acrobatics in this elegant and intimate encounter of engaging, sophisticated fun.
Circa are known for presenting circus without spectacle: Closer looks at the human body and the authenticity of the performers as they confound expectations and prompt an emotional connection with the audience. This beautiful and quirky show takes us on a magical and delicate journey in a world filled with chaos.
Closer transforms objects and motifs from everyday life that we wouldn’t normally even consider. As the masterful acrobats gracefully ascend a tower of chairs, our hearts skip a beat and we feel something without knowing what we’re feeling. Closer has been commissioned specifically for the iconic ‘upside down purple cow’ Udderbelly venue, that will occupy the Southbank over the coming months.
