Eternity is Circa’s hymn to transcendence.

Eternity is a new site-specific commission by internationally renowned local performance company Circa.

Step into a cathedral, surrounded by the magical music of Arvo Pärt, recorded by the extraordinary Australian Chamber Orchestra. This sets the stage for an hour-long circus performance like no other, created by the visionary Yaron Lifschitz and performed by members of the globally renowned Circa ensemble.

In Eternity, these talented circus artists explore powerful emotions and delve into profound themes such as love, death, loss, hope and wonder. Through their breath-taking acrobatics and awe-inspiring feats, they express the human experience in a way that will touch your heart.

This show goes beyond the physical capabilities of the human body, pushing the boundaries of what we can see and understand. It poses the question: can circus grapple with the mysteries that lie outside the visible realm?

Eternity is a show that immerses you in a state of rapture, featuring two monumental works of contemporary spiritual music by Arvo Pärt: Tabula Rasa and Fratres. As these captivating melodies fill the air, you’ll be surrounded by stunning architecture, creating an atmosphere that transports you to another world.
