Cirque d'Armoire illuminates the lives of forgotten clothing, toys and dolls, offering a glimpse into the mysterious world associated with lost and cherished items from our wardrobes. The collection draws inspiration from an imagined narrative behind antique objects and toys. The performance lures the audience into a crawl-space from another realm, capturing the playful and heart-warming as well as the somber and bone-chilling presence of the antique porcelain doll. Choreography developed by Mariana J. Plick, while the music was made in collaboration with Ted Ciafardini.
