TANGRAM

Cristiana Casadio & Stefan Sing / Italy & Germany

Complex, sensuous, and irreverently imaginative, Tangram redraws the boundaries of dance, new circus, and physical theatre. Where pointe shoes once remained at the ballet barre and juggling balls were once contained within the circus ring, they now run wild across the stage. Stefan Sing and Cristiana Casadio breathe new life into their art forms as they come together to tell a story of love, scorn and, above all, power. Whether she is hanging from her partner’s fingertips like a marionette or he is shielding himself from balls landing upon him like missiles, the pair embody both passion and fury at once. Tangram questions what it is to surrender to love and asks us, who is in control?

“Exciting visual spectacle…Stefan Sing and Cristiana Casadio have created a piece that absolutely opens the door to its audience, using juggling and dance in perfect harmony to take us through the trials and tribulations of love. Sing’s background in circus complements Casadio’s in ballet which makes for a fast pace and exciting visual spectacle.” – BroadwayBaby.com

Tangram is full of grace, humor, stunning partnering, clever inventiveness and multi-layered meaning.” –Herald-Tribune, Sarasota FL
