Under the Big Top
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
