In Communitas, wordless acrobatic encounters tell the story of the founding of society in which all members are equals. Communitas is a full-length evening of acrobatic dance and live music, in which acrobatic effort becomes a language of storytelling in action. As four performers encounter each other, they tumble and fly across the stage, pushing themselves to reach new levels of trust, strength, and risk-taking. Starkly simple in its design, Communitas is a meditation on balance through human structures, and a deep exploration of individuality and cooperation. Taking the concept of a “communitas” -- an unstructured society in which individuals are equals -- as a provocation and starting place, Almanac’s ensemble indexes the experience of their relationships across over 6 years of collaboration. The show will feature performances by Almanac Company Members Nicole Burgio, Ben Grinberg, Lauren Johns, and visiting company member Adam Kerbel (Los Angeles), with live original music by Ill Doots drummer and multi-instrumentalist Jordan McCree.
