Paper Doll Militia presents
Warped (world premiere)
by Paper Doll Militia
February 21st -24th, 2019
Warped asks you to stare directly into infinity and embrace the mysteries of Time. This circus theatre production challenges our societal perceptions of predictability and illuminates our complex relationship to our own mortality. Enter a fascinating world of suspended gears, cranks, levers, and ropes that move and morph like the inner mechanisms of a giant clock. Join these four quirky characters in their odyssey of relativity through this strikingly visual production in true Paper Doll Militia fashion.
This production is a true blending of circus arts and physical theater, balancing high skilled acrobatics with physical acting and attention to narrative. The show also utilizes projection and shadow work, and features original music composition. It has been lovingly crafted in Los Angeles and is in its final stages of creation

Open Workshop with artists from Paper Doll Militia’s WARPED
February 23rd from 1pm-3pm
Join the artists for a journey into the magical clock world of WARPED by exploring the unique counterbalance system that was specially designed by Circus Gear for the show. While working with our unique Vertical Theatre Method, using improvisation techniques and exercises, your inner artist will be inspired to create beyond the limitations of time. Participants will gain new ideas on approaches and methods that can be incorporated into current and future creative projects for all eternity.
Participants must have some experience with aerial arts, on any apparatus. Beginners and other community members are welcome to observe.
