Veritas - NICA National Circus Centre
Our friends at NICA are staging a spectacular high-energy circus combines with stunning video projection to portray the interior landscape of archetypal characters each seeking the truth. Their bodies are suspended, falling fearlessly, risking all. We join them on their journey of exploration and discovery through a kaleidoscope of aerial adventure.
The cast of eighteen 3rd Year Bachelor of Circus Arts students explore our longing to be loved, our dreams and fears with poignancy and humour and through the physical and poetic language that is unique to the artform of circus. Veritas is a vivid, inspiring celebration of life that charts the known and unknown, challenging assumptions of where journeys begin and end.
Veritas is devised and directed by Holly Rollins who has returned to Melbourne from her home town of Boston USA, to work with NICA students, trainers and creative team to create this sophisticated new show. Holly synthesizes her experience as an aerialist on Cirque du Soleil’s Quidam and La Nouba with her Masters in Education research in Adult Development, from the prestigious Harvard University, to create a rich and lyrical performance that stays with you long after the curtain call.
