Premiere of a new work and a continuing look at the young troupe presented in 2001 by MIFA to critical acclaim. In its third season, Wire Monkey Dance (WMD) brings a new gravity-defying performance to the stage. Using construction scaffolding, huge pieces of fabric, and cideo projection, the company’s powerful acrobatic dancers create a distinctive and compelling world. Short Circuits explores the socio-political and cultural issues surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, male and female archetypes, human relationships, and power.
