An on stage journey exploring life from birth to death
The National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA) will present Empty Bodies this September, performed by the circus school's current Second Year Ensemble.

Whether you've been exposed to art of circus or not, NICA's performances always offer something far left-of-the-middle of that you will know or expect of traditional Big Top acts.

Each NICA performance follows a unique theme, which sees students express themselves through physical theatre, showing off their abilities in a contemporary fashion.

NICA boasts its very own seated stage that opens up to the public a handful of times a year. Each show is performed in such a professional manner, they leave audiences in awe of what student circus artists are capable of.

This September sees NICA's second-year students perform Empty Bodies. This is an on-stage journey exploring life from birth to death, examining our representation of self through language and clothing.

"We are born from nothing and enter as a blank slate. On the journey we clothe ourselves with whatever we can, scurrying like refugees across a barren land snatching at love and meaning. What does it mean? Nothing. Then what's it worth? Everything."

The show sees 28 talented artists perform a choreographed mix of solo and group acts. Empty Bodies is put together by Zebastian Hunter and Stephen Sewell, and choreography by Meaghan Wegg. Set and costume design by Stephanie Howe and composition/sound design by Ian Moorhead.
