Four bold cities – Florence, Naples, Venice and Rome. Each with its own proud people. Each with its own proud past. Each with a secret ambition. Plotting princes. Scheming city states. Bustling piazzas. Gushing fountains. Hold your breath and enter Baroque Italy.
The Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, in its fourth collaboration with Circa Contemporary Circus, will take audiences on a rollicking ride through Italy’s multi-layered past. From the crumbling columns of the Roman Forum to Dante’s flourishing Florence, dynamic dream-worlds will emerge in daring new choreography combining musicians and acrobats like never before.
Propelled by the vivacious Brandenburg string orchestra performing a kaleidoscopic Paul Dyer pasticcio, Italian Baroque with Circa will dance to its own unique tune. It will be sexy, it will be delicious and it will be passionately Baroque.
