BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
ADAPTED AND DIRECTED BY ELIZABETH DINKOVA
Seeking asylum after a brutal war has decimated Rome, the displaced survivors reconstruct their country’s tumultuous past to build a better future. As the republic faces threats from within and without - a war with the neighboring Voslces and civil strife between the wealthy elite and poor citizens- Coriolanus, a decorated war hero wary of compromise and bred for combat, becomes a pawn in others' political machinations. When he is exiled as a traitor to the people and enemy to democracy, his anger shatters the veneer of civility and plunges Rome into chaos. When all is said and done, can his mother and wife’s defiant vulnerability pierce the shield of toxic masculinity and save Rome from burning?
A PERFORMANCE OF CIRCUS, SELF AND OTHER
BY LUCY EDEN
DIRECTED BY ELIZABETH DINKOVA
How do you juggle your past, present, and future selves without dropping the ball?
In her one-woman autobiographical busking show, Lucy Eden interweaves circus, humor, poetry, and personal narrative to explore identity, gender, and our capacity for transformation.
“Lucy Juggles: a performance of Circus, Self and Other” is an origin story, chronicling a journey of gradual self-discovery: fear, repression, acceptance, and celebration of the authentic self. This love letter to the liberating power of performance includes juggling, knives, unicycles, and fire.
Lucy Eden is a veteran Atlanta performance artist, unicyclist, juggler and transgender visibility advocate. With a background in street performance, her passion for bringing circus arts to pedestrian spaces has been life-long. She has performed in solo and ensemble productions in Atlanta, and across the US. Her shows combine storytelling, virtuosity, and a unique queer southern charm.
