Dispersion

The National Institute of Circus Arts presents Dispersion - a contemporary, abstract circus work set to live improvised music, exploring the forces that both separate and bind humankind.

Co-Directors Zebastian Hunter, who is fresh from working on Barnum the Circus Musical, and Meredith Kitchen, lead NICA’s cohort of 2nd year performers in the daring 60 minute production by future circus stars. With a cast of 15 the show explores the notions of cultural identity - from the initial evolution of a collective species into diverse tribes - to the modern, globalised world where cultural identity can be more obscure. In a spectacular display of circus, movement and physical theatre, performers will flip, soar, skip and contort to conquer a swinging Russian bar, a double tightwire and a group rope performance. A live band featuring drummer Chris Lewis (former Circus Oz Musical Director), guitarist Kathleen Halloran (Kate Ceberano, Kathleen Halloran Trio) and Dr Jenny Game-Lopata underscores the performance. These improvising musicians will traverse the musical globe, drawing styles from countries around the world.
