Gravity: A Vintage Affair  | Open: 01/13/13 Close: 01/14/13
“Gravity: A Vintage Affair” is a contemporary circus showcase based on what we defy each and every time we perform: Gravity. The show begins with an apple falling from above a la Sir Isaac Newton, and continues with a lovely aerialist floating in the air on her draped silk. The company has layered the ideas and concepts surrounding gravity with the music styles of the 30's and 40's to create a classic vintage salute. To keep the show contemporary, the 2 Ring Circus have re-mixed those classic sounds to blend the contemporary with the past and arrive with “Gravity: A Vintage Affair”. The five cast members perform on a variety of circus apparatus from the spectacular silks to a spinning Rope and Hoop. The combination of graceful execution of acrobatic skills and a hip yet classic soundtrack brings a contemporary spin to the classic circus’ of the past.
