“Almanac Dance Circus Theatre” to Perform Live at Valley Forge Middle School
Friday, Mach 24th at 7:00 PM
Presented by DELTA
Districts Educating and Learning Through The Arts
Join Almanac — one of Philadelphia’s freshest and most exciting physical performance companies — for an evening of repertory and new works that combine dance, theatre and high-flying acrobatics. Since its founding in 2013, Almanac has created 5 full length, “flippin’ fantastic” works of genre-defying performance and toured them throughout the United States and internationally. Excerpts from Almanac’s full length works including Communitas and Exile 2588 will be accompanied by a brand new selection from the company’s upcoming Fronteras, featuring Mexican artist-in-residence Emmanuel Becerra.
Almanac Dance Circus Theatre forges ensemble-driven performances that fuse acrobatics, storytelling, and daring physicality. “Dance Circus Theatre” means that the performers take the essential parts of those three genres to craft a new hybrid. It’s theatre because they tell a story or show an image that an audience member can recognize in his or her own life; it’s dance because it’s about the body and rhythm and music; it’s circus because it’s dangerous — the movements aren’t just beautiful or graceful but visibly difficult to achieve with a real risk of failure. The Almanac ensemble explores the unconventional ways that this danger can be used in service of storytelling.
Tickets to the DELTA show at Valley Forge Middle School on March 24th are $10 and are available online at www.artsdelta.net or at the door. To inquire about reduced rates and reserved seating available to groups of 10 or more, e-mail email@example.com.
