More about Acrobatic Conundrum:
Critics are calling Acrobatic Conundrum one of the most important artistic voices in the modern circus uprising. This December, they’re returning to their hometown of Seattle, to debut an astounding array of gravity-defying new works.
The stage is set at the beautiful new state of the art 12th Avenue Arts for two new pieces. First, running Dec 1 – 10 is a curated cabaret called Volume 5, which features new short works from the ensemble and guest works from some of the best contemporary circus artists in the business.
Closing out December with shows Dec 15 – 23 is The Fig Tree Waltzes. In this evening-length performance, Acrobatic Conundrum blends circus and dance into a poetic experience with ensemble-based aerial work, athletic modern choreography, and a touch of humor. In a world where stakes are high and time is running out, The Fig Tree Waltzes is a paean to the human drive to keep playing against overwhelming odds.
