Lights On

Bask in exclusive new works developed by leading Brisbane companies and creative artists emerging from isolation.

Lights On at Brisbane Powerhouse is a curated series of bespoke shows; a limited season created for small audiences and a re-imagined venue.

Join Circa Ensemble for an extraordinary evening of circus, featuring new solos and duos, set to an eclectic mix of music including a live cello performance by Matthew Jones of Queensland Symphony Orchestra. Combining deep feeling, reflections of recent isolation and astonishing physicality, these original and moving works will thrill audiences.

Be the first to experience the buzz of live performance again. It’s time to reconnect and shine a light on our extraordinary local arts community.

Celebrate our reopening and make the most of your night out by enjoying a cabaret platter for two and a bottle of wine, bubbles or champagne while you enjoy the performance.

  • ...stunning, fearless yet poignantly vulnerable


  • Under director Yaron Lifschitz, the Circa ensemble has become globally recognised for its innovative and influential style of circus, which expands the vocabulary and emotional palette of the form, exploring fertile borderlands with physical theatre and contemporary dance in a way that deepens the impact of the physical genius on display.

“The mighty Circa” (Lyn Gardner, The Guardian) Circa Contemporary Circus is one of the world’s leading performance companies. Since 2004, from its base in Brisbane, Australia, Circa has toured the world – performing in 40 countries to over a million people. Circa’s works have been greeted with standing ovations, rave reviews and sold-out houses across six continents.

Circa is at the forefront of the new wave of contemporary Australian circus – pioneering how extreme physicality can create powerful and moving performances. It continues to push the boundaries of the art form, blurring the lines between movement, dance, theatre and circus. Fuelled by the question ‘what is possible in circus?’ Circa is leading the way with a diverse range of thrilling creations that “redraw the limits to which circus can aspire.” (The Age).

Under the direction of circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz, Circa features an ensemble of exceptional, multi-skilled circus artists who have been a regular fixture at leading festivals and venues in New York, London, Berlin and Montreal with seasons at Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Barbican Centre, Les Nuits de Fourvière, Chamäleon Theatre as well as major Australian Festivals.

Visit to find a Circa performance near you and discover why Circa has been hailed as nothing short of “… a revolution in the spectacle of circus.“ (Les Echos).
