Special Relativity – Circus through Space and Time from Stacey on Vimeo.
Special Relativity is a full-length, contemporary circus show of original material conceptualized by Stacey Kigner and Allison McDermott, and created in partnership with Air Temple Arts. It will debut in New Haven, Connecticut in January 2015, with plans to adapt it for touring.
In Special Relativity a steel magnate from the 1890s finds both his mettle and the depth of his devotion tested when a space/time accident separates him from his consort. If he’s going to have any chance of seeing her again he has no choice but to follow her path through the time vortex.
We’ll travel from the Stone Age to a dystopian future, telling the story of Special Relativitythrough Chinese pole, aerial dance, acrobatics, contortion, Spanish web and more.
Special Relativity will play at the ACES ECA theater on January 16th and 17th, 2015.
We’re currently raising funds for Special Relativity with an IndieGOGO campaign. Learn more about the show and contribute here.
