About the Work
 
Edgar Cortes Dance Theater's CIRCOPIA is a playful, comedic, dramatic, and often exaggerated view of the circus of the past. It is a combination of nostalgic antiquities and contemporary oddities, where differences and diversity are not only welcomed but celebrated. From playful to surreal, characters will delight the audience with a visual experience but also take them on a humorous and emotional journey. CIRCOPIA is a futuristic voyage to the nostalgia of yesteryear.

Dance Visions NY's Earth Trilogy   explores the human impact upon the natural world in three sections. The first is based on Isadora Duncan dances that have rhythms and properties of our natural environment at their core, dances that celebrate the wonders of water, earth and air. The second section depicts how humankind might have destroyed the precious natural world that we have taken for granted. Surreptitiously, our own waste products, a product of our self-indulgence and self-centeredness, destroy us. The final section—with a special musical appearance by the women’s choir Willow—is a statement of possibility, a hymn embodied in music and movement to honor our earth.
