Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

A symphony of acrobatics, sound and light, Humans 2.0 is next level circus by the Australian contemporary circus group Circa. Ten bodies appear in a flash of light. They move in harmony for a fleeting moment and then descend into a sinuous trance. Towers grow and decay, bodies leap and are caught, as physical limits are pushed to their extreme. Created by circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz, with pulsing music by composer Ori Lichtik and dramatic lighting by Paul Jackson, Humans 2.0 is intimate, primal and deeply engaged with the challenge of being human. 


… spellbinding physical drama, with just the right amount of play, death-defying tricks and whimsical imagery.
