language of chance
Inspired by author Jorge Luis Borges’ magical realist tale, "The Library of Babel," this show consists of two pieces: A Book is Not a Ladder by choreographer and director KT Niehoff and Secret Passages by UMO Ensemble Executive Artist Elizabeth Klob.
the way out
In Acrobatic Conundrum's debut production, eight strangers find themselves in a room with no exit. They are isolated from the world in a bunker where supplies are scarce. With no allies but each other, eight disparate personalities vie for survival, connection, and a way out.
