Absence, Separation & Desire in Circa; Il Ritorno
The Australian raved that the ballet Circa; Il Ritorno is "a powerful vision of humanity and compassion -- and now this acclaimed work of dance is coming to Cal Performances' Zellerbach Hall in Berkeley. Set to the music of Claudio Monteverdi's opera Il Ritorno d'Ulisse in Patria performed by a live chamber ensemble and singers, this powerful physical poem of absence and separation features seven skilled acrobats appearing to lift, hold, levitate and fall against a stark black backdrop. Their movements driven by the forces of desire, devastation and absence, the figures' core motivation is the hunger to return home, powered by longing and haunted by the past.
