Biography

Aura CuriAtlas Physical Theatre (AC) is a company of artists dedicated to creating innovative performances that combine dance, theatre, and acrobatics. AC’s joyful, athletic style and reliance on nonverbal storytelling engage audiences of all ages. The company’s work embodies qualities reflected in their name – lightness (Aura), curiosity (Curi), and strength (Atlas) – and a playful perspective to find enchantment in ordinary situations presented in unusual ways. Since 2014 Aura CuriAtlas has toured their two shows, DREAM LOGIC and A Life With No Limits, to communities large and small in the Midwest, East Coast, and Southern United States. Reviewers have noted the company’s energy and originality:

“Combine strength and humor, a dash of curiosity, a pinch of whimsy, and a generous dose of inventiveness, mix thoroughly and you have Aura CuriAtlas Physical Theatre's compelling brand of storytelling and movement … DREAM LOGIC is family friendly, but not dumbed down in any way. The central themes are readily accessible and dealt with compassionately and with great humor.” (Pamela Roberts, BroadwayWorld.com, March 8, 2016)

“Aura CuriAtlas has developed a unique, intensely physical brand of performance without words, incorporating circus and dance techniques into narratives that are eye-popping in their execution and touching in their meaning. Feats of balance and strength abound as the story unfolds.” (Andrew White, BroadwayWorld.com, March 1, 2017)
