“In captivating ‘Passengers,’ this train is bound for glory.”
Now firmly established among Cal Performances’ most frequent and popular guests, Montreal’s wildly imaginative circus troupe visits with a stylish new production the Canadian press has called “an evocative and inspiring whirlwind” (Le Devoir). A hybrid of contemporary dance, circus arts, acrobatics, and theater, Passengers follows a host of agile performers as they travel by train and contemplate the connections between their lives. Acrobatic feats such as aerial routines, juggling, tightrope walking, and hula hoop spinning emerge from the drama as each person drifts off and succumbs to their own traveler’s reverie.
Program notes will be available approximately one week before the performance.
