About the Show

Aloft Circus Arts: “Grave Space” is the building of a blanket fort, sneaking under a hoopskirt, an impulsive congregation in the tiniest of tents. Starting as a puddle of fabric on the floor, it grows to encompass a world of wondrous circus. Intimate and low tech, we invite the audience to sit together with an all-female cast of bold acrobats to build the world we want to live in, even for only a few shared moments. Inspired by the idea of creating community in divisive times, and designed to be able to pop-up almost anywhere, “Grave Space” includes juggling, cyr wheel, duo trapeze, a rope act like no other, and awe-inspiring feats of balance and strength. Grave Space requires 100% trust between the performers and the audience as together we physically construct the show and keep the artists aloft.

Location:  Circus Campus, 6452 Greene Street, Philadelphia, PA 19119
