Previously seen at BAM with Inside Out (2009 Next Wave), Swedish troupe Cirkus Cirkör returns with the US premiere of Wear it like a crown. Four performances will be presented at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House (30 Lafayette Ave) Jun 1 - 3.
This tragicomic, and at times absurd, piece takes its inspiration and name from a track by recording artist Rebekka Karijord. The work explores chaos and order and the transformation of risks into opportunities—taking our failures, fears, and shortcomings, polishing them up, and wearing them with pride, like a crown.
Directed by Tilde Björfors, Wear it like a crown has Music and lyrics by Rebekka Karijord, Costume design by Anna Bonnevier, Lighting design by Ulf Englund, Dramaturgy by Camilla Damkjaer, Choreography by Molly Saudek, Cilla Roos and Film and projections by Johan Bååth.
Performances are Jun 1 at 7:30pm, Jun 2 at 2 & 7:30pm and Jun 3 at 3pm.
Tickets start at $20 (Jun 1) and $25 (Jun 2 & 3).
