Flam Chen, MSA ANNEX and The Carpetbag Brigade present CALLINGS 12/14-15
If the ocean were ill, would she weep?
If clouds were riddles,, would we listen?
If a sailor survived a siren’s song, would words adorn the saline tongue?
Wedding the grace of modern dance with the raw intensity of physical theater in the spectacle-based format of acrobatic stilts, ‘Callings’ embraces images and issues of climate change evoking a shifting undertone and intimate sense of mystery and tension.
A full-length (50 minute) medium scale street theatrical performance, suitable for all ages and languages. True pioneers at the art of acrobatic stiltwalking, “Callings” masters a unique theatrical language in the delicate overlap of theater, dance and circus. Rising with beauty, falling with grace and conjuring ephemeral magic with the movement and action of their powerful bodies, the performers emanate and pulse like the sea at twilight. Balancing intensely raw and precarious physical expression with sublime dramatic imagery.
