“I’ve already been won over by great coffee and familiar faces, so it’s off to a good start.”
WHO: Cecilia Martin, Acrobat
WHAT: “The new, thrilling and heart-stopping performance from the internationally acclaimed Circa (Closer, Beyond, Wunderkammer). Humans is an ecstatic love letter to our endangered species. Created by Yaron Lifschitz and fresh from a storming season at Sydney Festival, ten acrobats go faster, harder and higher than ever before, taking us on a stirring journey of what it means to be human and of how our bodies, our connections and our aspirations all form part of who we are.”

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
Yes! It’s my first time in this amazing city, ready to be overwhelmed by some world class talent and spread delight with a new Circa show (I’ve already been won over by great coffee and familiar faces, so it’s off to a good start).
Tell us about your show.
Humans was created by Yaron Lifschitz and the Circa ensemble and it first premiered at the Sydney Festival in January 2017. Since then it has been performed in three countries internationally.
The show is being produced in Edinburgh by Underbelly, and this will be our longest season so far, marking the end of a five-month tour of Europe and Canada. We are then heading back to Australia for rehearsals before taking the show to France in October.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
This question is a little tough because I haven’t yet had a chance to fully sink my teeth into what this festival has to offer, but there are a bunch of shows I’ve caught at other festivals and can highly recommend.
For circus, Aussie pals Casus will blow you away with Driftwood and All Genius All Idiot are the best kind of insane. For kids and adults alike make sure you catch Children are Stinky or Trash Test Dummies, and for something not Australian and not circus (yet truly incredible theatre) Butt Kapinski is where to go. Also I haven’t yet seen (but heard amazing things) about Hot Brown Honey, Fauna and Soweto Gospel Choir.
