May 6–12, 2012, 12 am–11:59 pm
“…excitingly physical, strikingly visual performance…”
- Calgary Herald (Canada)
Presented by the Chicago Humanities Festival in association with MCA Stage
Making their debut in Chicago’s favorite perennial festival of theater for families, Montreal’s DynamO Théâtre unfurls their internationally-renowned acrobatic theater with Mur-Mur. A wall, with its graffiti and secrets, alternates as a playground and refuge for five young characters—two teenage couples and a pesky younger brother—swept up in an air-bound acrobatic ballet. Their flirting, teasing, and fearlessness become a moving reflection of a very special time in life, a world of young love and discovery, and minimal dialogue gives soaring, explosive gymnastics the center stage.
Mur-Mur is recommended for ages 7 and up. Running time is 55 minutes.
