Circo Luci is the endearing story of the physical comedian, Divertente, in search of the light of his life, Lucia.

Bumbling through a surreal world of color and ambiguity, he stops along the way to sample points of light in the line of his life. Characters bend light and inhabit the skies, creep in the shadows, lurk in the imagination, and astound in vivid light.

The show is a theatrical cirque-style live performance that combines physical comedy, sensational aerial performances, balancing circus acts and daring acrobatic stunts. Circo Luci is suitable for all ages.


Melodically mimicking the ever-changing effects of a vivid light display, the Circo Luci soundtrack illuminates rhythmic ambiguity.

Layers of strings provide a warm flowing undertone that pairs with the upbeat staccato feel of galactic sounding synths coupled with the pulsating beat of the bass drum; a riveting musical account of the variations of light and movement.

Quirky, surreal sounds parallel the physical manifestations of Circo Luci’s characters on stage, mirroring the infinite variety of movement and properties of light.
