Circa: Il Ritorno

Saturday, January 27, 2018, 4:00 AM

Australia's Circa has always created work at the crossroads of cirque and modern dance. But never has the company so fully embraced that potential as in "Il Ritorno." This evening-length work is steeped in the movement vocabulary of cirque, but pushes that language to stunning new emotional and psychological ends. Accompanied by a string quartet and two singers performing excerpts of Monteverdi's "Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patria," seven dancers strive to connect with each other against a stark black wall, precariously lifting, holding, levitating and falling, their movements driven by the forces of desire, devastation and absence.
