Circa Cairns presents THE WET

You don’t know Far North Queensland if you haven’t experienced THE WET. From the moment the green ant begins its journey to higher ground until the final breaking of the storm, THE WET connects you to place and immerses you in the hot damp. Circa is delighted to announce the launch of Circa Cairns, a bold new chapter in its journey to explore ‘what is possible in circus?’

Circa Cairns is a new First Nations led circus ensemble creating exciting circus shows from the heart of Cairns. THE WET has been created on country across Far North Queensland in response to the landscape and endless yarns with community. Drawing on these ancient stories of the wet tropics, this dynamic acrobatic show thrills while connecting everyone to country.

Conceived by Circa Cairns’ Creative Lead, Harley Mann (Wakka Wakka), and embodied by the Circa Cairns ensemble, THE WET is powerfully enduring circus, dripping with culture.

Circa Cairns is a proudly First Nations-led contemporary circus ensemble, based in regional Queensland, dedicated to creating bold art from the nexus of place and culture.

Fuelled by values of thrilling, challenging and connecting its diverse team which features a majority of First Nations artists, creates, presents and tours new circus productions and innovative engagement programs. 

THE WET was imagined, created and performed on the country of the Gimuy, Walubara, Yidinji, Girramay, Mamu, Gunggandji, Djabugay, Kuku Yalanji people.

Circa Cairns acknowledges that art has been practiced here over many millennia, and that it remains a fundamental way of life for the traditional caretakers and custodians of the lands on which we work, create and perform today. They acknowledge that we are here as visitors, and accept the responsibility to respect and care for these lands and tread lightly.

THE WET will be performed at Cairns Performing Arts Centre (CPAC) 10-11 February. Tickets begin at $24.80. Click here to learn more.
