CIRCA ENSEMBLE: IL RITORNO

Tuesday, January 23, 2018 at 8:00 pm

Against a stark black wall, the acrobats of the Australian company Circa Ensemble strive to connect with each other, while music from Monteverdi’s opera Il Ritorno d’Ulisse in Patria is played and sung by a live chamber ensemble. Akin to a physical poem, the staging sees seven highly-skilled artists precariously lift, hold, levitate, and fall, their movements driven by the forces of desire, devastation, and absence. At the core of this show is the hunger to return home – saturated with loss and war, powered by longing, and haunted by the past.

Il Ritorno is created by circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz in collaboration with composer and arranger Quincy Grant and the Circa Ensemble.
