Quick Link: Discount tickets to Circa Contemporary Circus
During Circa Contemporary Circus: Il Ritorno, acrobats strive to connect with each other, while music from Monteverdi’s opera Il Ritorno d’Ulisse in Patria (The Return of Ulysses to his Homeland) is played and sung by a live chamber ensemble.
Akin to the physical poem, seven highly skilled artists precariously lift, hold, levitate and fall – their exquisite movements driven by forces of desire, devastation, and absence. Il Ritorno is created by circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz in collaboration with composer and arranger Quincy Grant and the Circa Ensemble.

Considered to be one of the world’s leading performance companies, Circa Contemporary Circus is at the forefront of the new wave of contemporary Australian circus – pioneering how extreme physicality can create powerful and moving forms.
