From July until October Circa will tour our home country visiting 19 Australian towns and cities! You can catch three different Circa productions while the ensemble are on the road, including Landscape with Monsters, Carnival of the Animals and Troppo.
If you drove the entire distance between the 19 towns, it would be over 9,200 kilometres and take over 120 hours, or 1,757 hours to walk the circuit – that’s a lot of driving and a lot of games of ‘I Spy’ to pass the time. See tour dates and locations, and discover more about each of the shows below by checking out their videos.
