Edgar Cortes Dance Theater
Choreographer: Edgar Cortes
Dancers: Amelie Benard, Edgar Cortes, Katie Czyr, Constance Nicolas Vellozzi
Composer: Dmitri Shostakovich (Jazz Suites / Ballet Suites)
CIRCOPIA" is inspired by old fashioned circus and side shows, bringing to live old acts like the strong man, half man, half woman, Siamese twins, animals, tight rope, magic etc.
I have always been inspired by the diversity and originality of these acts that brought together a community travelling from town to town, and by the colorful costumes, characters and music.
As a contrast, all the costumes, sets and props will be in black and white as a way to take people back in their memory and remember the circus and side shows of the past.
Saturday, March 19th at 5:00 pm
NOTE: This performance includes two shows: "Circopia," and "Tumbling."

Emerging Artists returns with their one-of-a-kind festival. Visit the theater any evening during this three-week event, and you'll find yourself transported in a number of surprising ways: by a single performer embodying a whole host of characters; by a more experimental theater piece "done differently" that challenges and delights; by a cozy two-person show exploring relationships; or perhaps by a bouncy new musical that will have you humming. Emerging Artists has always been about new works, new talents, new voices. That's never been more evident than now.
NO REFUNDS will be granted.
