Description

What does it mean to be a woman? Muse attempts to answer this question circus style! There's hardly just one answer and exploring the question calls for some... acrobatics. The show's collection of eclectic performers will have to choose between a football uniform or ballet outfit, but few actually identify with either of these archetypes. Playing with gender roles, Muse offers up a refreshing view of contemporary circus. Get ready to see powerful women, graceful men and every permutation in between. Whether wearing high heels or shoulder pads, the acrobats' bodies are sure to amaze.
