About the show:
The Circus Project is proud to present Seattle's premiere contemporary circus company The Acrobatic Conundrum and their latest full-length original show. Created by veteran choreographer KT Niehoff in collaboration with company director Terry Crane, and paired with atmospheric pre-show entertainment from The Circus Project's own Performance Troupe and Training Company,
*"A Book is Not a Ladder," draws inspiration from Jorge Luis Borges' story, Library of Babel. In an infinite universe lined with books that are uniformly gibberish, the human element searches for meaning. The acrobats find themselves at odds between the sensations of falling forever, and the Sisyphean task of looking for story in a nonsensical world.
>> The Acrobatic Conundrum founded in Seattle in 2012, is dedicated to creating performance experiences that delight and inspire audiences. As a company, they are dedicated to a vision of human courage, connection and collaboration. The company has produced four shows to date; the most recent show having headlined the first contemporary circus festival in the US in Chicago this past January.
>> The mission of the Circus Project is to utilize the unique power of circus arts to transcend social barriers and inspire personal transformation, while contributing to the development of circus as an art form.
