National Institute of Circus Arts - Love Happens

Love Happens From Australia

World Premiere

Adventurous, sexy and ultra-modern young circus seeks like-minded audience to share thrilling times...

What happens when top graduates of Australia’s National Institute of Circus Arts create a show that’s all about love, in all its confusing permutations, enigmatic rituals and tempestuous pairings? Love Happens is a gorgeously alluring new-generation circus showcasing the skill, athleticism and creativity of Australia’s most talented young contemporary circus performers. Yes, love definitely makes this sassy little circus go round, matchmaking acrobatic, aerial and clowning skills with theatrical drama and poetic imagery in the most luscious of mixed marriages. Suitable for all ages.

Directed by international circus artists Rodrigo Matheus and Carla Candiotto Love Happens has been devised with, and is performed by, graduates from Australia's National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA).

Supported by the Council on Australia Latin American Relations (COALAR).
