Welcome to the world of Contemporary Circus Arts! Between Worlds is a series of workshop performances of new original work that showcase the essentials of circus arts: aerial dance, acrobatics, dance, theatre, music and puppetry. ‘Super Hero Old Folks’ Home is inspired by the world of comic book mythology, directed by Aaron Wheeler-Kay. At its heart, it is about our elders and the impact on the community when we lose them. Featuring artists of all ages and physical abilities, this is a story about family, aging, inner strength, and being the hero in your own life. The Circus Project presents a show exploring themes of the Seven Deadly Sins under directors Russ Stark and Alicia Cutaia. By refracting multiple movement arts through the choreographic lens of Bob Fosse, performers will embody the universal struggle against “sin” transporting the audience through a world where sin is the way of life. Will they emerge a better person for the journey or be lost to the power of the “Seven”? Tempos tells the story of the hero’s journey based on Joseph Campbell’s work. Through flight, physical theatre and dance, you will follow one man’s journey as he is transformed from an everyday man into his own personal hero.
