Description

Explore an evening with Goddesses and Queens. The Cirque-ability Adult Cabaret is pleased to present an aerial meditation on the power of female mentors and heros!

Showtime is 8:00pm, Doors at 7:50pm

Featuring:

Meghan Bruni Aerial Hoop- This piece portrays the life of her grandmother, Gina Bruni. Following World War 2, Gina and her husband left their home in Italy and took a boat to Canada. Arriving with nothing, Gina was alone and nervous in a new world. Using her determination and strength, she built a life for herself and her family.


Erika Lui Aerial Silks- Exploring the strength of overcoming trauma and prejudice, how Maya Angelou -- American poet and playwright, memoirist, and civil rights activist -- rose above it all.


Nikki Shih Aerial Hoop- Portraying the character Rey, the scavenger, torn between the nostalgia of her comfortable past and the challenge of new adventure that changes her life


Elizabeth Scott Aerial Silks- Buffy the Vampire Slayer “Into every generation a slayer is born: one girl in all the world, a chosen one. She alone will wield the strength and skill to fight the vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness; to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their number.” She may be the chosen one, but this Slayer also has to navigate high school.


Sarah Gray Aerial Hoop - Portraying Sonya, from Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment. Sonya is a complex woman who embodies self-sacrifice, generosity and long suffering commitment while being victimized by the state for her chosen profession as a sex worker.

Maelys Fillon Aerial Silks - Becoming a Valkyrie offers unprecedented freedom, but with freedom comes responsibilities. Soldiers of the Apocalypse “Ragnarok”, they have to show courage and keep fighting even in the most frightening situations.

Eman Hillawi Aerial Hoop- "If you're really lucky, you'll find out that your soulmate was disguised as your best friend the whole time."


Jazzmine Raine Aerial Silks- Tortured by pain and loneliness, yet celebrated for her talent in portraying such emotion, Frida spent much of her life in her own head. Through a paint brush she was able to escape reality where she could question race, gender and sexuality in Mexican society. Through this piece, I have recreated a series of tableaus from Frida's most famous works, exploring the emotional journey this infamous feminist lived in her own world of isolation.


Laine Newman Static Trapeze- Inspired by queer theorist, Sara Ahmed, this piece tells the story of the willful child: The one who is seen as resisting authority; the one who is troublesome and unruly; the one who refuses to be held down. Though she seems to be responsible for disturbing the peace, when we listen to her willful ways and hear what she has to say, we find a revolutionary femme resistance with the capacity to change the world.

Cydney Penner Aerial Silks- Exploring the Odessey from Circe's perspective as a powerful woman alone. Working with the concepts of watching and being watched, vulnerability in shared spaces, and controling your own narrative.


Erika Lui Aerial Hoop- exploring the emotional and physical pain and trauma of the horrors of World War II, where Irena Sendler saved the lives of nearly 2500 Jewish children during the Holocaust. This piece questions what it means to be in a world of chaos and finding freedom in yourself.
