Almanac Dance Circus Theatre blends physical theatre, live music, world-class circus, aerial performance and audience interaction in xoxo moongirl; the hilarious, heart-wrenching and breathtaking story of one woman processing a family life riddled with domestic abuse. Almanac’s first ever ensemble-devised, full-length solo show features Nicole Burgio and award-winning composer Melanie Hsu in a semi-autobiographical, aerial and acrobatic exploration of escaping the gravitational pull of trauma, navigating complicated relationships, and always believing you’ll end up on the moon. Created and produced by Almanac, a Philadelphia-based contemporary circus company. This is their European debut.
