Featuring cirque by the New York City’s renown ABCirque and live music by contemporary pioneers cordis, Le Cirque Esprit presents its latest creation, Spirit of the Machine. The new show is based on the Greek mythological tale of Talos— “the first machine”—and was inspired by cordis’ epic multi-movement suite, The Only, which features mechanical instruments such as a 1902 Victor Talking Machine, a large custom-made music box, and a pocket watch. As with all of Le Cirque Esprit’s undertakings, this new show is packed with breathtaking acrobatics and aerial acts paired with classic steampunk-era circus artistry.
Funded in part by the New England States Touring program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program and the six New England state arts agencies.
