A pioneering circus sung into existence in a thrilling world premiere.

Fathers are the bone on which sons sharpen their teeth.

Son is a cultural circus work about the relationship between Fathers and Sons.

Inspired by Circa Cairns’ Artistic Director Harley Mann’s own experience growing up in a single mother household and how it informed his masculinity, Son challenges the Western model of family to celebrate Culture and Queerness.

We see four male First Nations acrobats embrace who they are, their physical strength and guarded vulnerabilities. Accompanied live by female First Nations quartet Kardajala Kirridarra, the work is beautifully sung into existence, juxtaposed with striking acrobatics and tempered cultural dance.

From sunset to sunrise follow the son as he questions his identity through his journey into manhood. Part odyssey, part coming of age story, Son is pioneering circus on the cusp of tradition and revelation from First Nations circus company Circa Cairns.

Co‑directed by Harley Mann and Alex Berlage, don’t miss this world premiere event and revelatory circus experience.
