“A bewitching 70 minutes in which the nightmarish and the dreamy meet and disintegrate in a puff of smoke and the whistle of a train.” —The Guardian
Directed and Designed by Victoria Thierrée Chaplin; Performed by Aurélia Thierrée
West Coast Premiere
Welcome to a ravishing world of adventure in which dreams come to life and the miraculous unfolds before your very eyes. A brilliant display of physical theater, acrobatics and dazzling stage invention, Aurélia’s Oratorio is inspired by the magic of the music hall, variety show and circus to create an intoxicating concoction of illusion and fantasy. Sister of visionary ringmaster James Thierrée, who last dazzled UCLA Live audiences with his spellbinding Junebug Symphony, the elegant and waif-like Aurélia Thierrée evokes a world of nostalgia and child-like wonder in this astonishing production created for her by her mother Victoria Thierrée Chaplin, a pioneering member of “new circus” troupes Cirque Invisible and Cirque Imaginaire.
