From the creators of Humans 2.0, Peepshow and Wolfgang’s Magic Musical Circus, one of the world’s leading performance companies Circa is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a special hometown premiere of their international hit What Will Have Been.

Fresh from a sold-out three-month tour of France and a smash hit season in Avignon Festival, What Will Have Been is the most challenging show in Circa’s repertoire for their performers.

Three acrobats and one violinist perform live on a bare stage, drawing audiences into an astoundingly rich world of pure muscularity and strength, and serenaded with the haunting melodies of Bach and Vivaldi mixed with a contemporary playlist. Where beauty meets ferocity, expect to leave this performance feeling breathless.

Directed and sound designed by Yaron Lifschitz with violin performed by Queensland Symphony Orchestra’s Rebecca Seymor, it features two of Circa’s most experienced ensemble members Daniel O’Brien and Kimberly Rossi with recent recruit, the indomitable Zac Stephens.

Described as “a work of immense power” (★★★★★ The Public Reviews) and "utterly captivating” (Daily Review), don’t miss this strictly limited season.

Presented by QPAC and Circa
