When playing a game of Scrabble, or nowadays Words with Friends, there are a few letters that are always handy to have on hand – one of them being ‘s’. Something of all-rounder, the letter has managed to find its way into a number of words in our vocabulary, with many of these being adjectives that you can really sink your teeth into, including ‘sensual’, ‘sophisticated’ and ‘savage’. Delving into all things related to the seemingly inconspicuous letter that takes the 19th position in the alphabet is Circa’s latest show, S. The show is inspired by the shape, grammatical functions and sounds of the letter. Using this inspiration, the choreographers have created a show that explores the potential of human strength and flexibility against a backdrop of heady music. See this beautiful performance at Brisbane Festival from September 8–15.
