“NOMA” is a wordless movement piece with aerial dance directed by Sara Zepezauer, choreographed and designed by the Circus Solaris Collective. In the work, individual artists collaborate to create something bigger than they are capable of alone, using painting as a metaphor for the darkness that can overtake us in our futile flight from death. Features dance and aerial movment that looks like a painting. The dancers’ movements mirror the strokes of a brush, accompanied by projections and paint. There is also live music composed by collaborating artists, comprised mostly of strings. Director Sara Zepezauer became an aerialist when a tragic accident at age 18 forced her to have knee surgery. While she couldn’t stand or dance on the ground, dancing in the air was a different story. Cast of 12.
