Things NOT of this EARTH is an exciting new production featuring the 2016 graduating class from the National Institute of Circus Arts in a retro sci-fi themed showcase.
Directed by renowned circus and theatre artist Hayden Spencer with associate direction from award winning circus artist and NICA graduate Emma Serjeant, Things NOT of this EARTH incorporates elite-level circus skills in a satirical romp towards an extra-terrestrial utopia.
Distinctive circus acts will be presented against the backdrop of a sci-fi inspired “B movie”. The production will feature a diversity of other-worldly delights including a killer hermaphrodite from outer space, a giant foot-juggling strawberry and a soccer-ball-juggling alien.
Fourteen of NICA’s final year artists will present spectacular solo acts including aerial straps and rope, Chinese pole, contortion, handstands, hula hoop, juggling, rolla bolla, roue Cyr, tightwire and trapeze.
Audiences should prepare to be on the edge of their seats as part of this utopian space exploration, which invites them to wander off the beaten path and away from their comfort zone. You’ll have to ask yourself, “Who or what is really to be feared in this world?”
