Academy Award®-winning UK animation studio Aardman teams up with Australia’s Circa for a new live production of international hit Shaun The Sheep, coming to Melbourne’s Regent Theatre in April.
Circa Contemporary Circus, one of the world’s leading performance companies, has joined forces with multiaward- winning and globally renowned animation studio Aardman to create a new circus-theatre production for audiences of all ages, Shaun the Sheep’s Circus Show.
Commencing at the Regent Theatre on Wednesday 14 April during the school holiday period, and direct from its world premiere season in Brisbane, it promises an inventive and clever live show that the whole family can enjoy on different levels.
Aardman’s signature Shaun the Sheep animation is combined with live performance from Circa, simultaneously blurring the lines between movement, dance, theatre and circus. A visual spectacle, Shaun the Sheep’s Circus Show is also packed full of smart wit and outright hilarity.
Director Yaron Lifschitz and the Circa Ensemble capture all the sophisticated and challenging elements of Circa’s extreme physicality while embracing the fun, humour and playfulness found in the world of Shaun the Sheep. Scenic Designer Dan Potra and Costume Designer Libby McDonnell have created a new world for Shaun and his flock to inhabit, seamlessly blending the dimensions of animation, stage, film and live acrobatics.
Venue: Regent Theatre
Season: From 14 April 2021
