Tickets: $10-$25 sliding scale
In the home of Contemporary Circus Theater, two circus/theatre/dance companies are workshopping material that explores the essentials of the human experience and one of our eternal challenges: communication. Both ensembles combine dance, theatre and acrobatic circus traditions to craft original live performance work rooted in social issues. "Essentials" is intended for multi-generational audiences.
With "Underneath", Tempos Contemporary Circus presents the story of people making the best of what the tides leave them, rebirth and how our underlying fears should not dictate what we choose to see in others.
Echo Theater Company's "It's Like This" follows a diverse group of otherworldly creatures as they strive to understand a newly arrived creature that seems difficult to communicate with. A beautiful and comic story that explores the balance between individuality and inter-reliance.
Appropriate for all ages, recommended for 5 and up.
