An acrobatic exploration of the place we call home
Landscape with Monsters is a breathtakingly original circus-theatre creation from internationally acclaimed company Circa.
Yaron Lifschitz and the fearless Circa ensemble have forged a new type of circus. There are no traditional circus acts, no trapezes and not a red nose in sight. Instead, from a world of simple wooden boxes, a hard floor and tall metal structures, the meeting between ourselves and our environment is thrillingly brought to life.
Landscape with Monsters tells the story of post-industrial cities now in decay. Metal and wooden objects intersect with fast-paced acrobatics. This intensely physical new show is at once humorous and brutal, savage and beautiful.
Set to a soundtrack that mixes popular song and electronic music, Landscape with Monsters is bursting with the thrills that are the hallmarks of Circa performances. Emotions and bodies intertwine until we discover the monsters in the landscape just might be ourselves...
If you loved Circa’s breathtaking performance of Beyond in 2015 make sure you don’t miss Landscape with Monsters.
