Cirkus Luna! and Makbet with Dzieci Theater
Cirkus Luna! & Circus Workshop June 22, 1:00 PM
Makbet June 23, 6:00 PM
Cirkus Luna! Performance and Workshop
An absurdist romp from the greatest (and only) East Molvanian circus in the world! Featuring acrobats, jugglers, clown (there's only one), and more. An absolutely ridiculous afternoon of fun. Recommended for children six to ninety-six.
Workshop afterward for all interested in circus arts and rampant buffoonery.
You have not seen anything like Makbet! Riotous performers from the "Old Country" greet you with song, dance, and divination then lead you through the peaks and valleys of Opus 40 in a wild, whirlwind of witchcraft, omens, passion, bloodshed, and vaulting ambition. For Dzieci Theatre’s visceral take on Macbeth, actors spontaneously trade off parts from scene to scene, exploding the art of story telling, and creating a one-of-a-kind experience which audiences have said is, "Absolutely liberating!"
*Both shows and the workshop are outdoor at Opus 40 and involve lots of moving on and around the sculpture.

You haven’t seen Macbeth until you’ve seen it presented by Dzieci…an eye-popping-ear-poking confirmation that Shakespeare once again constructed something not easily degraded. And you’re not likely to see anything resembling it ever again. ~ David Finkle, Huffington Post
Dzieci is an international experimental theatre ensemble dedicated to a search for the “sacred” through the medium of theatre. Integrating techniques garnered from such theatre masters as Jerzy Grotowski, Eugenio Barba and Peter Brook, ritual forms derived from Native American and Eastern spiritual disciplines, and an ethic based securely in Humanistic Psychology, Dzieci aims to create a theatre that is as equally engaged with personal transformation as it is with public presentation.
Note: “Dzieci” is the Polish word for “Children”.
