Circus Now: International Contemporary Circus Exposure 2015

The circus arts are continually evolving. New companies across the world expand their medium’s spectacle and popularity by pushing boundaries and subverting audience expectations. Celebrating such innovation, Circus Now—a communal movement dedicated to promoting its art form—presents a three-night showcase from 50 artists and nine companies, all of which honor circus traditions while raising the bar.

In a mirage of hypnotic visuals and clever costuming, Finnish circus and visual-theater outfit Compagnie Nuua transforms the human body into a tool for manipulation, expression, and poetry, blurring the lines between juggler and jugglee (January 8).

Thought-Provoking Trapeze
Jamie Hodgson and her troupe, Girls on Trapeze, present excerpts from HerSelf Rising, an examination of the roles women play in their own and each other’s lives told though stories and aerial artistry (January 9).

Swedish Stunners
Cirkus Cirkör, Scandinavia’s leading contemporary circus company, delivers a mix of street theater and vaudevillian antics that have bowled over audiences across the world and helped establish new schools for the next generations of Swedish performers (January 10).

NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts

NYU sits at the center of the creative fondue pot that is Greenwich Village, but it spent its first 172 years without a full-scale, professional performance space. That finally changed in 2003 with the opening of the Skirball Center for the Performing Arts. Embracing the artistic spirit of its neighborhood, the center's 860-seat proscenium theater hosts everything from student productions to innovative performance groups from around the world.
