About

Aura Curiatlas Physical Theatre explores storytelling through dance, theatre, and acrobatics.  Company members bring a range of disciplines to the work: Modern dance, acrobatics, Acro-yoga, mime, circus arts, hip hop, stage combat, Contact Improvisation, ballroom dance, and Commedia dell’Arte. We seek to foster imagination, creativity, and human connection through performances, workshops, and audience talk-backs. “Combine strength and humor, a dash of curiosity, a pinch of whimsy, and a generous dose of inventiveness, mix thoroughly and you have Aura Curiatlas Physical Theatre's compelling brand of storytelling and movement … DREAM LOGIC is family friendly, but not dumbed down in any way. The central themes are readily accessible and dealt with compassionately and with great humor.” (Pamela Roberts, BroadwayWorld.com, 2016)

Concerts/Performances

Performances range from 45 minutes to 90 minutes and are appropriate for all ages.

DREAM LOGIC is a collection of magical, quirky, and exciting short stories told through movement.  We find enchantment in ordinary situations presented in unexpected ways.  What happens to the crayons that don’t get picked?  What happens when the only bus seat left is completely broken?  What happens to the dream when it loses its dreamer?  DREAM LOGIC is a repertory-style show with flexible programming of 8-12 pieces.

A Life With No Limits is inspired by Stephen Hawking’s life and discoveries.  We reflect on the determination, passion, and sense of humor of someone whose physical restrictions create no limits for his mind, heart, and imagination. 

Educational Programs

Educational programs are tailored to the specific needs of the presenter, including university dance and theatre programs, primary and secondary schools, and community groups.

Workshop/Master Class (1-3 hours): Classes are led by the co-artistic directors and are a reflection of the creative process of Aura Curiatlas. Classes feature dance and theatre movement techniques, Contact Improvisation, partner acrobatics, and creative collaboration.  Our goal is to
draw out what is unique about each participant and to create opportunities for communication and collaboration with others.

Residency (multi-session or multi-day): Residency activities include performances, audience talk-backs, master classes, open rehearsals, showings with participants, and meet-the-artist conversations as determined by the interests of the presenter.  Our goal is to provide participants with opportunities to invest in their own creative potential by experiencing the creative process used by Aura Curiatlas.
