The National Institute of Circus Arts presents Precipice, an ensemble circus performance.

This September, Australia’s next generation of circus talents will be on show when the National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA) presents Precipice. Leaping into a world of chaos, Precipice defies danger in an effort to celebrate life—through exhilarating tumbles, turns, shifts and falls. Interrogating the impermanence of time, physical and psychological senses.

19 elite NICA circus artists have spent the last two years honing their circus and performance skills, guided by world-class trainers. The performers present spectacular solo and duo acts including roue Cyr, group acrobatics, handstands, adagio, unicycle, juggling, aerial rope, diablo, head trapeze and multicorde.

Through powerful expressions of circus and physical theatre, Precipice will illuminate our struggle for trust, surrender and love in order to overcome our fear of the unknown.

Precipice is directed by former Cirque Du Soleil artist Zebastian Hunter
Conceived by Zebastian Hunter & Stephen Sewell
Devised with Meredith Kitchen
Designed by Stephanie Howe
Suitable for: Rated PG
