Like a candy coloured dream, Australia’s CIRCA returns to Calgary. Don’t miss the Canadian premiere of contemporary circus piece, When One Door Closes.

Transforming Theatre Junction GRAND into a three ring delight, the show is sexy, kooky, thought-provoking, and joyful. Asking what happens when the theatre runs away to join the circus, three heroines meet in a visceral force of extreme acrobatic theatre. Using A Doll’s House as a springboard, Miss Julie, Hedda Gabler, and Nora invite you into this world of unhinged madness.

“What continues to draw me to this company is their ability to blur the lines between circus, dance and theatre with an ensemble of highly skilled circus artists,” says Theatre Junction’s Artistic Director Mark Lawes, in a statement. “The collective energy and individual responsibility inherent in their work, where each artist relies on their partner for life, is both breathtaking and beautiful.”

A co-production with La Boîte, CIRCA is known for creating powerful works at the frontier of new circus and When One Door Closes is no exception.

When One Door Closes runs May 9 to 13, 2017 at Theatre Junction GRAND (608 1st St. SW).
