Waking Dreamsfollows the journey of our stumbling Clown lead as he makes his way through the audience, fumbles his way up onto stage, performs a few silly antics, yawns, & falls to slumber. He is awoken by a crowd of fantastic characters who lead him through various acts and adventures in their colorful world which awaken his heart and senses to all the possibilities hidden in the world around him.
Acts include the beautiful Firefly Pointe & ribbon dance number, duo-quartet aerial silks, Solo or Duo Contortion, Acro/Cyr, Stilt-Acrobatics, Unicycle, juggling, Quartet Aerial hoop, and a colorful, festive & energetic Bollywood Dance Acro Finale. Most of the music in this show is original and can be played live which adds incredible drive and energy to the whole show experience.
Shineis a show designed to feel ageless, vintage, like you could have traveled back in time and are watching a silent movie, or an old-style circus sideshow. A slumped marionette is brought to live by our dark ringmaster on stilts who manipulates him on his strings until an old crone with a magic box cuts his strings and brings him to life. He in turn discovers a magic chest which turns out to be full of surprises, and there begins his journey, meeting all kinds of fascinating characters along his path.
Acts include Stilts, Clowning, duo adagio, fire, contortion, tightwire, juggling, aerial acts, and intricately choreographed dance numbers. We love to include our Rock & Roll guitarist to this show whenever we can, playing along to the backing tracks, adding intense energy to the driving beats and long guitar solos of the soundtrack.
