Engaging and amazing! Blending virtuosic circus skill, dance and physical theater, Acrobatic Conundrum creates a work that is poetic, a little absurd, beautiful and deeply relatable.
Acrobatic Conundrum’s, newest show, “Love & Gravity,” is a collection of entertaining and meaningful stories about unconventional love and the complexity of human relationships.
In this evening-length, original show, Acrobatic Conundrum artists use the thrilling language of acrobatics to tell poignantly honest accounts from the uncharted territory of relationships. Real life romances are beautifully portrayed through mesmerizing juggling acts, breathtaking aerial and partner acrobatics -- all while balancing on a bar 20 feet in the air! This groundbreaking show seeks to upend everything audiences know about the two laws of attraction -- Love and Gravity.
“A thematically-linked set of short stories, Love & Gravity is a rich, diverse piece that is distinctly American, told as only circus artists can, and uniquely in the voice of Acrobatic Conundrum,” said Terry Crane, Acrobatic Conundrum co-founder and artistic director. “This, our sixth show, explores how we as humans make and seek connection and it is our hope that the stories will leave audiences thoughtful and perhaps a bit more accepting and accepted about the ways they love.”
