Poetic tenderness. Raw emotion. Physical strength. Ten acrobats from the Circa ensemble bring Stravinsky’s seminal The Rite of Spring to the circus stage. Pulsating with tension and tinged with humor, this distinctive production from Artistic Director Yaron Lifschitz confronts humanity’s inter-connectivity, our inherent sexual desire, and relationship with divinity. Featuring a piercing lighting design by Veronique Benett and a stirring new composition by Philippe Bachman for the first half of the performance, Sacre penetrates the senses and stirs the soul.
Recommended for ages 12 and up.
