Closer by Circa (Underbelly Productions)
By Penelope Hervouet | Published on Wednesday 24 August 2016
Acrobatics with a comical, refreshing twist, this fast-paced show contains a variety of apparatuses and styles. All of the performers have incredible strength, balance and flexibility, and seem to perform all the roles traditionally found in acrobatic shows. Mixing aerial acts with floor gymnastics, ‘Closer by Circa’ has the audience on the edge of their seats, shocked and amazed as the performers push the limits of what the human body can do. The thrilling cast perform with an innocence and excitement that is contagious, and they even bring in audience members to participate! If this review isn’t convincing enough, the full standing ovation at the end of the show really speaks for itself!
Underbelly George Square, until 29 Aug.
tw rating 4/5 [Pénélope Hervouet]
