ICE Collab 2: Circo Zero

Circo Zero is a fusion of popular and experimental, contemporary and ancient performance forms. Directed by Keith Hennessy, a diverse team of circus and music artists create a hybrid spectacle for the urban environment. Circo Zero intends to evolve performance language and build community through collaboration while crossing lines of artistic discipline, personal and cultural identity, and social expectations. The work is intended to be both intimate and spectacular. Performance elements integrate traditional circus arts (aerial fabric, cloud swing, acrobatics, contortion, aerial hoop, juggling) and contemporary performance within a musical landscape of American roots/folk songs supported by contemporary rhythms (hip hop, breakbeat, ambient groove). The goal is to reflect and honor the global with the local.
