Circosis: Left Brain, Right Brain, is a two-part production of elite-level circus. Set in a world where obsession is the norm, the graduate showcase performances range from the poignant and evocative, to the flamboyant and outright absurd.
Twenty-three NICA circus artists have spent the last three years honing their circus and performance skills, guided by world-class trainers. They present spectacular solo acts such as aerial ladder, cloudswing, Chinese pole, hoop diving, trapeze, rolla bolla, rotating ring, tissu and roue Cyr.
Please note performers will alternate. If you wish to see all 23 graduating artists please ensure you book two tickets to this production – one to Left Brain and one to Right Brain.
