Aura — CIRCA

Circa turns its love for Brisbane into its latest circus show.

For more than a decade, CIRCA have showcased Brisbane's circus skills to the world, thanks to performances in 39 different countries. For their latest, they're not only unleashing their acrobatic feats on home turf, but taking inspiration from it.

Headed to South Bank's new Flowstate precinct from March 6 to 25, Aura endeavours to capture the spirit — and the sounds and vision — of this great city of ours. Guided by a collaboration between director Darcy Grant and sound designer Daryl Wallis, the all-ages effort has been described as "a physical love letter to Brisbane". Yep, unlike your usual ode, this one will literally leap to life in front of you.

It'll also echo through your ears, with attendees wearing headphones so that they can experience the immersive sound mix — one that includes everything from buses, trains and bikes to feet walking and car horns honking. And, as part of Flowstate's first year of operation, it's absolutely free; however you will need to register for your selected date and session.
