When Angels Fall
Peak Performances introduced American audiences to the boundless talents of this mesmerizing aerialist in 2016 with her luminous directorial debut, The Forgotten. In Boitel's new work, When Angels Fall, her agile, athletic performers create a rugged, ethereal dreamscape at the crossroads of circus, dance, theater, and cinema, in which everything organic has been replaced by machines. A heroic figure with feminine features rises to resist. In Boitel's world, aerial feats and theatrical invention are the building blocks for a work of fantasy, poetry, and hope.
