Announcing the world premiere of Son from Circa Cairns and Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus from Circa!

Two breathtaking performances from two of Australia’s leading contemporary circus companies – Circa Cairns & Circa – take over the Playhouse in partnership with QPAC this November.

Son from Circa Cairns is about the relationship between fathers and sons told through striking acrobatics, tempered cultural dance and sung into existence live by First Nations quartet Kardajala Kirridarra. Diving into the complex dynamics between fathers, sons and identity, this groundbreaking performance spotlights First Nations acrobats. 

Don’t miss this world premiere event where tradition meets revelation.

Returning to QPAC after a sell‑out 2020 season, watch Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus from Circa to see Mozart’s notes physically lifted off the page in this delightful show for audiences 3 years plus!

The thrill of circus meets the mayhem of Mozart as the legendary artists’ compositions are brought to life amidst a storm of powder, tumbles and crashes, all under the eccentric swirl of the conductor’s baton.

“The show is gilded with comedy that had all ages laughing with raucous enthusiasm, and the music keeps the carousel turning at a frenetic pace.” -Brisbane Times

Presented by QPAC, Circa and Circa Cairns will be at QPAC’s Playhouse from 22 – 26 November 2023.

Tickets to Son are $49 and tickets to Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus are $35. Secure your tickets for both shows now!
