I love sitting on the grass on a warm night in Halifax just as the sun is about to set watching incredible feats of aerial acrobatics, break dancing and fire dancing, woven together in a touching arc about falling in and out of love and finding connection, trust and (literal) balance.
This is exactly what Up in the Air: A Circus Love Story is and it plays at St. Matthew’s United Church as part of the Atlantic Fringe Festival. The performance from Kristin Langille and Alex Smith is awing and beautiful and engaging and it is one of those shows that is meant to be seen and experienced and doesn’t benefit from much more being said by me beyond, “just go see it.”
Just two more shows at St. Matthew’s Church (1479 Barrington Street) tonight:
Tues Sept 8th 8pm and 9:30pm
