She gives him the cold shoulder. He pushes her away. Yet both would rather passionately embrace. Love is at once heaven and hell. Complex, sexy, and irreverently imaginative, Tangram redraws the boundaries of dance, new circus, and physical theatre.
Created and performed by renowned ballerina Cristiana Casadio and world class circus artist Stefan Sing, Tangram engagingly describes the human struggle of attraction and repulsion.
Where pointe shoes once remained at the ballet barre and juggling balls were once confined to the circus ring, both now run wild across the stage. Casadio and Sing breathe new life into their art forms as they come together to tell a story of love, scorn and, above all, power. Whether she is hanging from her partner’s fingertips like a marionette or he is shielding himself from a barrage of balls landing like missiles, the pair embody both passion and fury at once. Tangram questions what it is to surrender to love and asks us, who is in control?
