Acrobatic Conundrum presents “The Fig Tree Waltzes”
December 9, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm$24
From Acrobatic Conundrum:
The Fig Tree Waltzes is a moving exploration of indecision, desperation and tenacity in the face of choice. Devised and performed by Acrobatic Conundrum, this work features their signature style of virtuosic athleticism infused with relatable humanity.
With all new music from Finnish composer Petteri Rajanti and choreography from Costa Rican superstar Jimmy Ortiz, this updated rendition pushes the artists to the edge. Strong women hang from lofty trapezes and bearded men spin in hoops wearing skirts. A group of acrobats dance, tumble, and tell stories in the language of circus. In shadows cast by stage light, mirrored realities show us the paths not taken.
In a world where stakes are high and time is running out, The Fig Tree Waltzes is a paean to the human drive to keep playing against overwhelming odds.
Shows run Dec. 2 – Dec. 16, 2018, at 12th Avenue Arts. Save by purchasing your tickets early.
