How Like An Angel
A new piece specially created for cathedrals
Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz
Musical Director Robert Hollingworth
Fusing Circa’s exhilarating brand of contemporary circus with the exquisite sound of I Fagiolini’s singing, How Like An Angel celebrates the beauty and grandeur of four stunning English cathedrals.
Join performers and singers on a journey of discovery around these sacred spaces. Intensely beautiful music and feats of astonishing acrobatics draw you deep into a world of physical daring and soaring sound, against a backdrop of stunning architecture.
Australian company Circa are at the forefront of reinventing circus, combining traditional and re-imagined circus skills with sound, light and projection. Circa Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz collaborates for the first time with Robert Hollingworth, Director of UK-based vocal ensemble I Fagiolini, who have travelled worldwide with their performances of Renaissance and contemporary music.

The voices of the ensemble literally soar alongside the bodies of the acrobats into the lofty heights of the rafters above.
