Italian visual artist and choreographer Alessandro Sciarroni returns to the ICA with a hypnotic reflection on the passing of time. Working with a cast of four professional jugglers, Sciarroni emphasizes performers’ discipline, focus, and concentration to thrilling effect. By stripping away the trappings of the circus, Sciarroni emphasizes the essential elements of juggling and the medium’s nearly endless combination of patterns and tosses (under the leg, under the arm, above the head, etc). Every toss and every catch marks the passage of time—a hypnotic and thrilling effect—again and again and again.
Support for the ICA’s 2018–19 Performance Season is provided by Vivien and Alan Hassenfeld and Ellen Poss.
