THE BODY ELECTRIC
Oh, it floats through the air/With the greatest of ease/This daring young neuron/On the flying trapeze—or at least we presume thats how the music will go at this latest science-inspired performance by the Swedish-based troupe Cirkus Cirkör. Titled Inside Out, the show aims to explore the mysteries of the human body while wowing the audience with aerialists, tightrope walkers, and other feats of acrobatic magic. Expect to see actors juggling viruses and hanging from strands of DNA for a fun, playful, gravity-defying tribute to scientific advancement. Electro-punk band Iryas Playground accompanies the weird science.
