Cirque du Soliel star directs upcoming circus showcase

Embrace the exquisite mystery of the unknown at We Are (Te Auaha, 7-9 August), the latest ethereal production from Whitireia Circus Dance.

Featuring a range of circus-dance disciplines including object manipulation, tumbling and aerial displays on silks, trapeze and straps, We Are reveals the stories, dreams and desires that connect us.

With just four shows, including a special 9pm performance on the Friday night, bookings are strongly recommended - head to to secure your seat and watch these talented young artists celebrate who We Are.
