Rear Vision

Drive in Circus Show

Book Now (https://vulcanawomenscircus.weteachme.com/l/fx2wBkYr)


Rear Vision is drive-in circus that is a response to our collective experience of dislocation, isolation and craving for connection, using circus, poetry and sound. 

Magnetic pull and repulsion will be enacted by circus bodies that crave to chew up space while cautiously negotiating intimate interaction.  Rear Vision asks us to acknowledge the rupture we are experiencing and consider our future collective actions.

Witness loneliness, chaos, cleanliness, lack of control, anxiety, fire, joy, wilderness, empathy, antagonism, and imagine how we find our way out of here.

Rear Vision invites audiences to drive in to this unique performance site, a large open carpark. The audience stays in the safety of their cars to view the visceral art of circus enacted beyond their windscreens. Car lights are choreographed and Phones channel sound directly into their private spheres via a downloadable free app. 

Discover Morningside as a new place for performance, art, and culture. Only 20 minutes

from the CBD.

“(A pandemic) is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next. 

We can choose to walk through it, dragging the carcasses of our prejudice and hatred, our avarice, our data banks and dead ideas, our dead rivers and smoky skies behind us. Or we can walk through lightly, with little luggage, ready to imagine another world.” Arundhati Roy

Rear Vision is delivered under Vulcana’s safe COVID-19 Plan

Rear Vision was an atmospheric, beautiful show in Vulcana's carpark., where the audience watched from our cars. It was inspirational, moving, funny. The spoken word / poetry interlaced amongst the physical scenes, reverberated with me about the year's various Covid-19 experiences.

The show was great overall! Interesting and entertaining. My only feedback was regarding the lack of direction for people while waiting for the carpark to open. Our car was the first one waiting, and there was no marked place to start queuing. Having clear signs, and at l least a couple of the team directing people world have made things more workable for attendees.

Watched last night. Loved the passion and dedication of the performers. Vulcana shows always deliver relevant and pointed commentary for the time.
