Aura Curiatlas Physical Theatre

Aug. 19
4 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Dance, Theater

Based in Williamsburg, Virginia, Aura Curiatlas Physical Theatre has been touring the country with a kinetically explosive showcase of its most recent works. Blending circus techniques, dance moves, and choreographic narrative, the troupe’s latest show includes a piece inspired by the theories of astrophysicist Stephen Hawking. The collaborators are acrobats, with added skills such as hand-balancing and clowning. Expect Pilobolus-style sculptural assemblages of body parts, a dash of whimsy, and some high-flying heroics. Also on the program are excerpts from the company’s “Dream Logic,” in which enchantment abounds and bodies are transformed into monsters. For tickets visit
