Reclaimed Pianos

Stunning, graceful and evocative, Reclaimed Pianos is an intimate new creation by internationally renowned company Circa that taps into the piano’s magical ability to transport us through time and to other places.

CIRCA and Country Arts SA


Bordertown, Lameroo, Cummins and Ceduna

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.
