Cirque Nocturne's producer and performer Kate Lawrence talked about the origin of the title and theme of the event: "The name LITHA comes from an old Celtic word for the summer solstice. We chose the name and the theme for the production to reflect the concept that summer has culturally in Australia - it's a time of carefree celebration, a time of year that is almost sacred. We asked the artists to use their childhood memories of summer as inspiration for their performance pieces. We wanted to invoke that feeling of laid back, buoyant joy that you feel whilst on summer holidays by presenting colourful, upbeat performances".
Cirque Nocturne was founded in 2016 and debut its first show at the Adelaide Cabaret Fringe. Since then, the company has performed shows throughout Adelaide and Melbourne to widespread acclaim. This will be the second time the company has presented LITHA in the Adelaide CBD.
LITHA from Cirque Nocturne takes place on Saturday January 6 at Rundle Park in Adelaide's East End. The workshops begin at 3pm and the free performance starts at 8:30pm. Come along and enjoy this spectacular free entertainment in the Adelaide parklands.
