Gravity-Defying Contemporary Circus

September 25-26, 2015

First of Three 2015-16 Contemporary Circus Presentations

Magmanus-by-Alex-hinchcliffe-as-Smart-Object-1New York, NY, August 25, 2015 – NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts will open its 2015-16 season with the New York premiere of Attached by the Swedish Contemporary Circus duo Magmanus, running for two performances on September 25 and 26, 2015 at 8 pm.  There will be a free post-performance discussion with the performers after each performance.

Contemporary circus performers Magnus Bjøru and Manu Tiger combine circus, theater, interactive elements and lots of Velcro to explore the idea of attachment in its many forms. Surrounded by stadium lighting with various contraptions dotting the stage, the performers’ Velcro-suited bodies make contact and are cleaved apart with the recognizable rip, demonstrating that everything and everyone—including the audience—is attached.

Magmanus is a Swedish circus company founded in 2009 by the Franco-Norwegian duo Manu Tiger (a small acrobat) and Magnus Bjoru (a large juggler) to spread happiness and inspire audiences to follow their dreams through impressive circus skills, humor and intensive interaction with the audience.  The duo has performed in 21 countries and on four continents, in venues ranging from traditional circus tents to festivals and street performances.  For more information, visit www.magmanus.com

The Skirball season also includes two additional programs of contemporary circus. Following last season’s sold-out festival, Circus Now: International Contemporary Circus Exposure 2016 (January 14-16) will feature new critically-acclaimed international and American companies displaying their cutting edge circus artistry. The award-winning French performance company l’immédiat ends the circus season (March 9 -12) with a beautifully orchestrated circus-theater work by the renowned performing artist Camille Boitel.
