7pm | 6th – 8th of October | Street One

A new circus work by Warehouse Circus presented in association with Circus For Life Festival.


What can replace the hole left by loss?

A freak flood rips through an Australian town – a village in tatters – a community in ruin. Amid the aftermath, an unlikely phoenix must unshackle a difficult past in order to grasp any chance of survival.

POLARITY interrogates how we weather life’s disasters – asking what we do when the scaffold of what makes us whole, gets ripped out from under our feet. Combining contemporary circus, physical theatre and powerful raw acrobatics, Canberra’s own Warehouse Circus will balance the lightness of flying through the air against the heaviness of needing to find ground in this exquisite new circus work.

Short preview performances will be taking place at Floriade as part of the Circus for Life Festival Community Program on Saturday the 1st of October at 1pm and Sunday the 2nd of October at 12pm near Vista Cafe weather permitting.
