Opus, which is underpinned by the music of composer Dmitri Shostakovich, features fourteen acrobats creating powerful and nuanced geometries with their bodies. The performers are joined on stage by the Debussy String Quartet, and the musicians’ contributions are far more than simply playing the music. Delving deeply into the complex relationships between the individual and the group, the march of history and the dictates of the heart, and the tragic and the comic, Opus is an evening of circus that eschews the zany for the thought-provoking.
