The world’s most romantic ballet, Swan Lake, reimagined as a family-friendly acrobatic spectacular.
Duck Pond is Circa’s exuberant take on Swan Lake, mixing the enchantment of the ballet with the thrill of the circus, emboldened with humor, panache, and feathers. The piece is full of Circa’s signature physicality and shot through with cheeky humor, enchanting duets, and colorful surrealism. See a clumsy film crew, a sequined flipper wearing duck army, and a burlesque black swan with sumptuous aerials, and dynamic cyr wheel. Touching, funny, and completely entertaining, Duck Pond is a tale of identity and finding your true self.
Created by circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz (“the Caravaggio of contemporary circus”) with ten members of the globally renowned Circa ensemble, this will be one of Circa’s most ambitious works yet with haute couture costumes courtesy of Libby McDonnell, music by Jethro Woodward (with hints of Tchaikovsky) and lighting from Alexander Berlage. The thrilling physicality of Humans 2.0 and the playful comedy of Carnival of the Animals combine to make Duck Pond a must-see circus epic.
