Brave Space

Brave Space is the building of a blanket fort, sneaking under a hoop skirt, an impulsive congregation in the tiniest of tents. 

Starting as a puddle of fabric on the floor, it grows to encompass a wondrous world of circus. Intimate and low tech, the audience sits nose-to-nose with an all-female cast of bold physical artists to build the world we want to live in, even for only a few shared moments.

Pittsburgh In The Round

“Brave Space imagines a kind of dystopian utopia, in which peril is made present but survivable, even beautiful. It's living, beating heart remains constant”

Dance Physical Theatre and Circus


This is the story of how circus can connect people. Cirk La Putyka and Kyiv Municipal Academy of Variety and Circus Art collaborate on this breath-taking show about freedom, friendship and borders. They are Gen Z. They are connected by age and social networks. But these performers have something more in common – they were brought together in March 2022, a few days after the Ukrainians experienced the outbreak of war and could no longer safely continue their training in Kyiv. Overcoming language challenges and finding strength in each other, they found a new way of communicating to express their youthful hopes for the future. Accompanied by enchanting music, with incredible circus talent and mesmerising dance, they display resilience and optimism in the face of adversity. *12% of Ticket Income will be donated to the Disasters Emergency Committee.*

Circus Abyssinia: Tulu

Inspired by the true tale of an Ethiopian icon, Derartu Tulu, this unmissable showcase of superhuman strength blends breathtaking contortion, awe-inspiring acrobatics, and mesmerising fire juggling with a rocking, exuberant soundtrack. Circus Abyssinia made their UK debut at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe and featured on the Royal Variety Performance in the same year. After touring internationally, including a sell-out run in New York, they are thrilled to return with their greatly anticipated new show. *reviews for ‘Ethiopian Dreams'

Circa: Humans 2.0

Ten bodies appear in a flash of light. They move in harmony for a fleeting moment and then descend into a sinuous trance. Towers grow and decay, bodies leap, and are caught, as physical limits are pushed to their extreme. Can we ever find a perfect balance or is adapting to constant change the only way forward? A tightly woven choreography of bodies, pulsing with music, Humans 2.0 is intimate, primal, and deeply engaged with the challenge of being human.   Humans 2.0 is commissioned by The Mondavi Center, UC Davis Circa acknowledges the assistance of the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body and the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland. Humans 2.0 is supported by the Australian Government as part of the UK/Australia Season 2021-22.
