The way out: A new way into storytelling
Heads up for a heart-stopping form of storytelling as members of Acrobatic Conundrum present “The Way Out,” an aerial acrobatic performance at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 19, at the Open Space for Arts & Community.
This Seattle-based contemporary circus founded by Terry Crane and Joselynn Engstrom will reveal what happens when eight strangers find themselves locked in a room with no exit. The storyline unfolds using the raw physicality of the performers as acrobatic aerialists, dancers and actors plus video images.
Originally performed in Seattle, “The Way Out” has been re-mounted during a five-day artist residency at the Open Space in preparation for the show’s inclusion in the Contemporary Circus Arts Festival in Chicago in January. Acrobatic Conundrum is dedicated to presenting original circus acts that portray a vision of human courage, connection and collaboration.
Tickets, $15 general and $8 children, are available at the Vashon Bookshop, www.brownpapertickets.com and at the door.
