Memento Mori

November 12 @ 8:00 pm 9:00 pm

The Isthmus Dance Collective presents Memento Mori: Dances of Life, Death, and Rebirth. Coming to the Madison Circus Space November 11-12, 2022 8:00pm, IDC invites Madison residents of all ages to enjoy its most innovative evening of dance to date. Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for youth. 

The leaves have changed and fallen, the wheel of the year has turned, and now we are reminded of the time of the year that signifies death. Riding on the coattails of the Day of the Dead, Memento Mori  will be an evening of delights that weave through memories of birth, life, aging, and death. Warm your bones in the glow of vivacious collaborations ranging from modern dance on skateboards with aerial, to flamenco and Mexican folkloric fusion. This evening of dance will take you on Death’s cyclical journey from spark, to blaze, ember, ash, and phoenix-like re-birth. Memento Mori builds connections in our communities by bringing dance artists of wide ranging disciplines together to collaborate and produce new work.
