Airborn babies, wine violins and an unusual linen basket – discover the world of Felicity Hesed’s Cara Vita: A Clown Concerto, which has its European premiere at VAULT Festival in February. Check out the production images, then book your tickets.
The production, which explores the joys, sorrows, and hilarity of contemporary adulthood through music, circus and magic, runs at The Vaults from 12 to 16 February 2020.
Cara Vita: A Clown Concerto is both a deeply personal and universally human story. Created and performed by Hesed, this comedy offers a uniquely female perspective on the struggles of maintaining one’s identity in the midst of family life. The production incorporates music, trapeze and magic to spin a whimsical tale of love and loss. Hesed’s show offers a fresh, female voice in the world of clowning.
Cara Vita: A Clown Concerto was developed as part of an Artist Residency at Circus Center and made its world premiere at the San Francisco International Arts Festival. Hesed developed the innovative and interactive show in collaboration with award-winning director Jeff Raz, while the production’s trapeze climax is choreographed by Elena Panova.
During Cara Vita: A Clown Concerto, Hesed is joined on stage by violinist Clare Armenante who creates an invigorating and masterful soundscape based on Brahms’ Hungarian Dances.
Cara Vita: A Clown Concerto runs at Cavern – The Vaults, Leake Street, London SE1 7NN from 12-16 February 2020, with performances Wednesday to Sunday at 9.20pm. Tickets are priced £15. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
