In the first ever circus setting of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, critically acclaimed contemporary circus company Circa tightly weaves together world-class acrobatics and dynamic encounters suffused with dark humour and rich tenderness in Sacre. Featuring new composition by Philippe Bachman alongside Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, the famous high C on the bassoon sounds and the stage explodes with bodies locked in a ritual unto death.
