En Masse Oct 23-25
Posted October 22, 2019
Australia’s Circa ensemble embodies electrifying explosions of physicality and power in this stunning work that blurs the boundaries of dance, theater, music, and circus arts. Known for their "stratospheric skill" (Australian), the troupe melds circus acrobatics with contemporary dance in the tender and savage En Masse, featuring music by Swedish composer Klara Lewis interspersed with selections from Schubert’s haunting Winterreise and Schwanengesang. Heightening the stakes, a two-piano arrangement of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring yields the anarchic energy of acrobats caught in a life-and-death struggle.
