Australia’s Circa has always created work at the crossroads of cirque and modern dance. But never has the company so fully embraced that potential as in Il ritorno. This work is steeped in the movement vocabulary of cirque, but pushes that language to stunning new emotional and psychological ends. Accompanied by a string quartet and two singers performing excerpts of Monteverdi’s Il ritorno d’Ulisse in patria, seven dancers strive to connect with one another against a stark black wall, precariously lifting, holding, levitating and falling, their movements driven by the forces of desire, devastation and absence.

A powerful vision of humanity and compassion…a luminous new work.

—The Australian
