London’s Southbank: Circa Contemporary Circus will premiere Humans 2.0

Humans circus

Based in Australia, international circus company Circa Contemporary Circus will bring the London premiere of Humans 2.0 to the Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall from 12 – 16 April 2023.

A circus in every sense of the world, they’ll take over London’s Southbank, right in the heart of town, to showcase their feats of balance, muscular control and teamwork. Humans 2.0 is a deeply primal show that showcases the beauty and mechanics of acrobatics. With a minimalist set, the show is aesthetically led by the physicality of the human body.

A troupe of ten acrobats push their physical limits to the extreme with feats including hand-to-hand acrobatics, human towers and banquine, using the sheer human body as swings, climbing frames and supports. Themes that shine through are teamwork and trust, and the show asks; Can we ever find a perfect balance, or is adapting to constant change the only way forward? 

Created by circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz, the production blends theatre with circus and dance. The score is created by one of the founding fathers of the techno scene in Israel, composer Ori Lichtik.
