Time is running out, and you have to make a choice -- him or her? Stay or go? Love or freedom? Risk more or cut losses? You only get one. As the remaining minutes of our life diminish, the game of life weighs on us. No matter what we choose, we lose an opportunity, and destiny hems us in with every step. But, in Acrobatic Conundrum’s The Fig Tree Waltzes, you can choose it all. It's a world where opposite outcomes coexist, a world of infinite possibility and opportunities to play. Strong women hang from lofty trapezes and bearded men spin in hoops wearing skirts. A group of acrobats dance, tumble, and tell stories in the language of circus. In shadows cast by stage light, mirrored realities show us the paths not taken. This show is inspired by Sylvia Plath, whose conceit imagined all her possible futures as ripe figs falling from a tree. It features music from Finnish composer Petteri Rajanti, choreography devised by Costa Rica’s premier dance director Jimmy Ortiz, and the defiant grace of the Conundrum acrobats. The Fig Tree Waltzes is truly a dance to spite our destiny.
