Boston Dancemakers Residency Showcase
Common Circus is a three-ring exploration of the mundane, in which common tasks and notions will be shown through a lens of performance and spectacle.
As a pandemic’s worth of at-home time passed, Kim Holman found herself focusing on the tasks and motions she repeated regularly, fantasizing about the site of utmost spectacle—circus—and questioning what it would be like to throw such rote tasks as making a simple cup of coffee into the three-ring environment.
Throughout this immersive work, audience members are invited to notice and celebrate the mundane bits of their own lives in the midst of a high performance environment.
