Humans 2.0 pushes the boundaries of what circus can be. Intimate and primal, this thrilling symphony of acrobatics and aesthetics explores what it means to be human – not just as a noun, but a verb. Through choreography that blends movement, dance, theatre, and circus, Humans 2.0 explores not what humans are but how we are – how we connect, attract, repel and attach, how we commune and how we isolate. More than just a showcase of the skill and virtuosity of individual performers, Humans 2.0 is about the collective power of the ensemble and its endless sculptural forms and variations.


Humans 2.0 follows ten individuals as they begin to move in harmony with each other, before their rhythms shift and physical limits are pushed to the extreme, as they grapple with the struggle to find balance amid constant uncertainty. Can we ever find a perfect equilibrium, or is adapting to constant change the only way forward?


With pulsing music by composer Ori Lichtik, Paul Jackson’s dramatic lighting, and directed by circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz, Humans 2.0 is a must-see. Intimate, primal and deeply engaged with the challenge of being human.

There will be a post-show talk with the cast after Saturday evening’s performance.
