Humans 2.0

March 11 – 12, 2022
Zellerbach Theatre
PLA Presents

Created by Yaron Lifschitz and the Circa Ensemble

Australia’s bold, contemporary circus troupe, Circa, makes an exhilarating return with a new love letter to humanity, following their smash hit, Humans, which had its U.S. premiere on our stage in fall 2018. Offering “spellbinding physical drama, with just the right amount of play, death-defying tricks and whimsical imagery,” (The Conversation, Australia) Humans 2.0 is a joyous, searching production where 10 performers find redemptive power in strength, sharing a much-needed message of hope for our pandemic-weary world. “Circa lives up to their reputation for the astonishing in Humans 2.0,” (The Sydney Morning Herald) pushing the boundaries of what circus and acrobatics can be in this thrilling Philadelphia premiere.

Please note, this performance uses strobe lights, haze and loud music.
