National Centre for Circus Arts12 Jun — 15 Jun
Bear witness to nine intersecting stories depicting the last nine minutes of nine characters’ lives, changing perceptions of what it means to be alive.
Through contemporary dance, spoken word, circus and music, 9 Minutes offers a wakeup call. Based on neuroscience research, rituals and altered states of consciousness, this show challenges the common perception that our lives are slipping past.
The National Centre for Circus Arts, one of Europe’s leading providers of circus education, returns to Jacksons Lane to present its 2019 BA (Hons) ensemble piece. The show’s creative team includes acclaimed choreographer Jorge Crecis, music and sound by Domenico Angarano, script-writer Paula Paz, set consultant Ricardo Pardo and lighting designer Muly Yechezkel.
Supported by Jacksons Lane.

"The dance builds up stunning momentum and intricacy — weaving and knotting, bursting out and leaping. Exhilarating"
