Four extraordinary circus artists are set to stun audiences in Hong Kong with acrobatic mastery at its most extreme.
Circa, the company behind five-star productions Beyond and multi award-winning Wunderkammer, challenge everything you think about circus as they wrench back the curtain to bring you the glorious, multimedia abstraction of Close Up. The Asian premiere is the first work commissioned by Udderbelly Festival.
“Nothing’s off-limits in Circa’s most intimate show yet. Be prepared for moments of raw beauty, unbearable tension and savage physical intensity accompanied by an interactive video and powerful music.”
“With productions that have toured 27 countries across six continents since 2006, Circa’s work is a stripped back circus of the heart. It finds new emotional landscapes inside what is generally considered to be a spectacle. Close Up is not a show that sits on the surface – instead Circa makes you feel something that is unique as the performers reveal their personalities, attempting physical challenges with nowhere to hide.”
Close Up will be showing between January 19th and the 31st at the Udderbelly theatre at Central Harbourfront, 9 Lung Wo Road, Central, Hong Kong. Tickets are available via Ticketflap here.
