8/13 – Kae Burke of Lady Circus
Lady Circus infuses every performance with feral exuberance and stylish extravagance. Stiltwalking is redefined as the art of stiltdance, and aerial is reformatted into raw, heated displays of inverted dynamism. Glasswalking becomes transcendent, fire dancing becomes revelatory, and sideshow becomes main show in this effusive collaboration of expression and aesthetics. Hoops spin in the air (as lyra), on the ground (as the glittering tool of nouveau hoop dance), and in between (as caught in between rhythmic gymnast jumps and contortions). Belly dance and other forms of sinuous grace weave fluidly throughout.
Mixing culturally relevant narrative with blindingly gorgeous costuming and interactive improvisation, Lady Circus both pierces and transports.
