Circus Luminous 2019 is a miraculous, family-friendly extravaganza that explores the ups and downs of chaos, with acrobats, dancers, aerialists, jugglers, contortionists, a live band and more!
Tickets: $20-$45 (Kids 12 and under: $12-$27). Available at Lensic.org, 505.988.1234, or at The Lensic box office, 211 W. San Francisco St. in Santa Fe.
You’ll experience four competing approaches to dealing with chaos—each inspiring you to ask where chaos comes from, and how it moves, sings, laughs, and flies. One approach urges you to improve your Self. Another tries to turn you against the Other. Yet another invites you to join the Resistance. And the fourth, well, we barely understand that one ourselves. Come early and join the immersive experience! The fun begins the minute you enter the Lensic lobby, when you’ll encounter a chaos “trade show”—sponsored by Wise Fool’s (fictional) Corporate Social Responsibility Program.
Circus Luminous, Wise Fool’s annual Thanksgiving show at The Lensic, features professional artists, a youth ensemble with students from Wise Fool’s circus education programs, and musicians from Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and Las Cruces. It is co-directed by Nandita Dinesh (dramaturgy and installation), Pamela Donohoo (dance and circus choreography), and Tara Khozein (theatrical and musical direction).
Buy into the chaos!
