Brought together while performing with Cirque du Soleil, choreographers Gabrielle Martin and Jeremiah Hughes formed Corporeal Imago (Ci) to explore the intersection of aerial acrobatics, contemporary dance, and visual theatre. Throe explores our interdependence in an inhospitable world where our existence is at the mercy of external circumstance. Featuring six powerful performers, three aerial ropes, and a soundscape of cosmic noise, this new work underscores our vulnerability in a universe of chaos, while highlighting the resilience and hope in collectivity. Throe continues to push the boundaries of aerial dance, blurring the space between floor- and air-based movement to create a compellingly kinetic and visually arresting world.
