Circolombia Colombia

Sheer energy, raw... a thrilling, skilled evening, a show with real attitude.

The Guardian

Urban is one of the most revolutionary circus experiences to hit Auckland in a long time, following a sell-out run in London and seasons in Paris and on Broadway.

It's filled with incredible aerial stunts, heart-stopping acrobatic prowess and high-voltage energy. You'll be white-knuckled, gripping the edge of your seat.

As Circolombia's spunky and street-wise performers jump, somersault, fly, tumble and breakdance across the stage they tell astonishing stories of life on the streets of Cali, Colombia. Set against a soundtrack of Latin-American inspired reggae and hip-hop beats, Urban will totally immerse you in the sights and sounds of the Cali streets.

Graduates of Circa Para Todos, Circus For All - the world's first professional circus school for disadvantaged youth -  Urban's 17 to 28 year-old acrobats reveal a city of joy and volatility where dance and music are the safety valves of everyday life. Sharing their reality with the world, they exude a power that is physical, raw, volcanic and incredibly honest.

Take the whole family on an exhilarating ride. You won't regret it.

# In a nutshell: Astounding acrobatic stunts, reggae and Latin hip-hop, spine-tingling moments.
