Storyline

This week's Australian Story is about a man credited with taking a small, troubled circus company and transforming it into a world beater. It's a case of 'move over Cirque du Soleil' with sell out performances and rave reviews around the world. The company is called 'Circa'. It was founded by Yaron Lifschitz. Against the hopes and expectations of his Jewish parents who wanted him to become a doctor or a lawyer, he went to drama school, and then into the 'dangerous and dirty' world of trapeze and acrobatics. Now, Circa has burst onto the international stage - this year alone, performing 400 shows in 13 countries, even opening the famous International Circus Arts Festival in Montreal, 'circus city' and home to Cirque du Soleil. But as this week's program reveals, behind all the professional success there is a story of personal adversity and of an unusual and richly varied extended family supporting each other through often tough times.
