The Rising | Circus Corridor (AUS)

Exploiting the spectacular physicality of bodies in the air, The Rising draws on a number of universal flood myths to explore our nation's paradoxical love affair with water on the world's driest continent in the age of climate change.

Eight local Gold Coast upcoming circus artists and their iconoclastic collaborators, face off against an ever increasing tide to ask: 'What are the costs of survival?'

About the creators:

The Circus Corridor is a collective of contemporary circus creatives driving innovative physical performing arts on the Gold Coast.

Commissioned by City of Gold Coast.
