Peepshow by Circa Theatre & Performing Arts

peepshow_by_circa


Circa come to London with Peepshow, an exciting European premiere that turns cabaret on its head, literally.

Peepshow lurches from the thrillingly acrobatic to the comically playful with teetering towers of balanced bodies, extreme bending and devilishly precarious aerials.

By makers of the smash-hit shows Humans, Beyond, Wunderkammer and Closer, Peepshow combines some of the finest acrobatic talent on the planet under the direction of circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz to create an exhilarating ride into the beautifully bizarre recesses of your mind.

Playing with the extreme physicality of this troupe of phenomenal acrobats, Circa blur the lines between movement, dance, theatre and circus. Exploring the concept of looking and being looked at, Peepshow uses circus to explore themes of gender and sexuality on the stage.

Yaron Lifschitz comments, I hope that Peepshow is one of those shows which is able to transform people’s expectations, bringing us new sensibilities with unexpected pleasures, and bridges the world between art and entertainment. Peepshow is the latest in Circa’s latest post-cabaret adventure. These take the form of cabaret and Circa’s medium of circus, add some extra ingredients (in Peepshow’s case a nightclub, a dream and ideas of looking) and shake. They shake so hard things break, stick together and turn wonderfully weird. The resulting cocktail is a fantasia designed to thrill and delight.

Taking over Underbelly’s spiegeltent with a nightclub vibe, most of Peepshow’s music is an original track written by Ori Lichtik (Batsheeva Dance Company) with an interlude of Sweet Dreams (originally by Eurythmics). Peepshow lets audiences see the world from the other side of the mirror.

Circa Contemporary Circus is one of the world's leading performance companies. To date, Circa has toured to 39 countries across six continents and in 2016 alone performed over 450 performances to over 180,000 audience members locally, nationally and internationally. As a champion of live performance, Circa manages arTour and was the Creative Lead for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games arts and cultural programme.

Circa acknowledges the assistance of the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body and the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
