This Is Not A Dream – By CIRC Motif

CIRC Motif presents a brand new body of work, ‘This Is Not A Dream’, exploring human consciousness using high-level circus, live music, and film.

Sometimes absurd, comedic, abstract, and chaotic the show explores perspectives of reality in which we all share but don’t question.

“We’re all hallucinating all the time; when we agree about our hallucinations, we call it ‘reality’.” – Anil Seth
