DEPART is a spectacular spellbinding show from internationally acclaimed Australian circus artists, Circa.
Coming to Blackpool, 1st-4th June 2017
Inspired by the ancient Greek legend of Orpheus and Eurydice, DEPART will transform one of Blackpool’s public spaces into the underworld.
Here for just 4 days, circus artists will dance above your head, surprising you with extraordinary feats of physicality as they guide you through the space between life and death in this astonishing visual feast.
Led by Yaron Lifschitz, creator of some of the most highly innovative and genre-defying circus in the world, with a creative team including the electronic music legend Lapalux, DEPART brings together acrobats, aerialists, video artists and Fylde Coast community choirs and dancers for an experience like no other.
