Marvel at high-flying performances with today's side deal: for $15, you get two general admission tickets to 12: An Aerial Performance Piece for Twelve Actors (up to a $30 value), performed by DNA Theatre troupe and hosted by the Maryland Institute College of Art's BBOX performance space. Choose between the following dates:
- Saturday, January 22 at 8 p.m.
- Sunday, January 23 at 3 p.m.
An innovative blending of theater and circus, 12 tells the story of the last 12 people on Earth and their attempt to survive in a dystopian environment. The play trades speaking roles and a definitive plot for aerial acrobatics, using ropes, harnesses, hand straps, and trapezes to describe images inspired by Ayn Rand's Anthem. A bleak and mechanical soundscape, sung by ornery carburetors, sets the eerie tone of the piece.
Show creator DNA Theatre focuses on acrobatic, aerial performances, and it has a residency at the MICA's BBOX performance space. Troupe members include professional performers, such as MICA students and alumni, as well as nonprofessional participants.
