Since 2004 Circa has been at the frontier of new circus – creating powerful works of circus art that challenge, thrill and delight. Featuring an ensemble of multi-skilled circus artists under the direction of Yaron Lifschitz, Circa’s award-winning works have been seen in 34 countries across six continents. At the centre of Circa is the art. Shows that push the boundary of the circus artform, blur the lines between movement, dance, theatre and circus and yet are a unique, singular ‘Circa’ experience. Circa also runs a Training Centre with a workshop program in our dedicated circus studio in Brisbane and with partners throughout Queensland and beyond. Circa manages arTour supporting other artists to tour and assisting Queensland presenters to program performance work for their local audiences.

About the Company

Emma Beech

Emma started making shows for her mum in her bedroom when she was 6, and won the local Rotary Public Speaking competition when she was 13. She ran off to the big smoke from her small town to train as an acrtess, but found the allure of telling her own stories in a multitude of different ways too alluring. So she headed to Denmark to learn about installation theatre techniques. She came back two years later ready to make and create. Emma has been involved in several processes and productions that have a community focused agenda, and has been a workshop leader for emerging arts companies such as Riverland Youth Theatre, Urban Myth Theatre, PYT (Sydney) & Courthouse Arts. Emma has also taught acting at a tertiary level at The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark and Flinders University.
