The Landscape Project 2016

The Landscape Project
Circus as a reaction to space, time and intensity

An ensemble performance directed by Debra Batton

This November and December, Melbourne audiences will experience the extraordinary skills and creativity of Australia’s next generation of circus stars before they step out onto the world stage when the National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA) presents The Landscape Project: circus as a reaction to space, time and intensity. This ensemble production features elite-level circus in three acts. Each act is a continuous flow of movement aiming to destabilise our expectations of what circus is. Directed by accomplished Australian director, performer and choreographer Debra Batton, the show playfully investigates the concept of circus as a physical and mental landscape.

Fourteen final year circus artists have spent thirty hours a week for the last three years honing their circus and performance skills. For the production, each student was asked to imaginatively respond to the question, “How do we engage with our landscape to unearth the show waiting to be exposed?” From here, the ensemble crafted original acts incorporating aerial rope, bottle walking, hula hoop, group acrobatics, slackline, tumbling, trampoline and more.

The Landscape Project transposes the qualities of a traditional landscape panorama to the circus environment, asking us to consider the stage as our landscape. The journey of the human eye through each scene guides us to ponder depth, foreground, focal points, surfaces and atmosphere. The production proposes the landscape as a frame for each young artist’s vital contribution to the circus environment.
