They have wowed audiences young and old all around the world and Galway looks set to be no different. Ten astonishing and highly–skilled acrobats take us on a stirring journey of incredible strength while exploring the physical limits of their bodies. The phenomenal Circa question how much we can take as humans with each show pushing the highly skilled acrobats to the extreme.

Created by Yaron Lifschitz, Circa’s reputation for fearless, boundary–pushing circus and physical theatre is borne out in every one of their shows.
