Gravity: A Vintage Affair
Our show began as a contemporary showcase based on what we defy every time we perform: Gravity. Lights up on an apple falling from above a la Sir Isaac Newton, continuing with a lovely aerialist floating in the air on her draped silk. From there we enter a whimsical party with a cast of five characters, performing on a variety of apparatus from the spectacular silks to a spinning rope and dazzling hoop. We layered the ideas and concepts surrounding gravity with the music & dance styles of the 30′s and 40′s., but with a remixed contemporary flair. With a combination of Broadway style dance, acrobatic skills and a hip yet classic soundtrack, we arrive at Gravity: A Vintage Affair – a contemporary spin to the classic circus of the past. This lighthearted affair is dynamic, sexy, humorous, and the perfect combination of dance and circus.
Starring: Lani Corson, Joshua Dean, Ben Franklin, Amy Shure, & Kenneth Ziegler.
“Gape at the aerial antics in “Gravity: A Vintage Affair” a circus and vaudeville show premised on defying Sir Isaac Newton’s discovery. Five performers swoop and spin through the air on hammocks, straps, silks and trapezes to remixed ’30s and ’40s music. The 2 Ring Circus production also includes dance, juggling, balancing, contortion and various other gobsmacking stunts by such finely formed figures that you’ll vow to hit the gym on Monday!” - Sarah Theeboom (Time Out New York)
