Critics are calling Acrobatic Conundrum one of the most important artistic voices in the modern circus uprising. This September, the one-of-a-kind Acrobatic Conundrum makes their way to New York for 3 performances in Brooklyn with The Fig Tree Waltzes.
The show follows a group of performers whose virtuosio athletic feats are offset with the fragilites of humanity, and the inevitable risks of passion and love. In a world where stakes are high and time is running out, The Fig Tree Waltzes is a tribute to the human drive to keep playing against overwhelming odds. This evening-length performance weaves together acrobatics, dance, Cyr wheel, storytelling, juggling, and aerial feats into a unique and unforgettable evening.
TICKETS: $15 - $50
