DESCRIPTION

FREAKISHLY CARNIVALESQUE VAUDEVILLIAN PORTRAITURE MEETS AERIAL PERFORMANCE

We welcome all circus freaks to the center ring. Experience the circus like you never have before. Our April exhibit invokes a deliciously deviant curiosity for the magical and absurd.

"Under the Big Top" explores the awe and wonder of circus performance, featuring decadently painted aerial acrobats, pretzel-like contortionists and fire breathing phantoms pushing their appearance and bodies to the upmost limits.

Catherine Murty will collaborate with aerialist Sonya Smith to create a spectacular interactive light sculpture suspended from the ceiling, titled The Bathypelagic zone, an installation of movement and light. Performances throughout the month:

- Opening night April 4th 7:45pm
- Saturday April 11th 12:30-1:30pm
- Sunday April 19th 4:30- 5:30pm
- Saturday April 25th 12:30-1:30pm
