Aura CuriAtlas Physical Theatre is bringing their acrobatic storytelling to the Kimball Theatre next month.

The theater group will perform at the Kimball Theatre at 7 p.m. on April 7, as well as at 2 p.m. on April 8.

The performance will include both new and old tales: Special Delivery, Pardon, Loonatic, Couple’s Therapy, Stack and Restack, Seats, and A Life With No Limits, according to a news release from the Aura CuriAtlas Physical Theatre.

“The lightheartedness, athleticism, and reliance on physical storytelling make Aura CuriAtlas engaging to audiences of varied ages and backgrounds,” the release said.

Joan Gavaler and Dan Plehal are co-directing the performance. Gavaler is a dance professor at William & Mary. Plehal is a director who specializes in blending acrobatics and theater, and has worked with theater and dance companies and acrobatic training centers in Europe and the United States.

“Aura Curiatlas has developed a unique, intensely physical brand of performance without words, incorporating circus and dance techniques into narratives that are eye-popping in their execution and touching in their meaning,” BroadwayWorld.com critic Andrew White wrote in a March 2017 review.

After the show, performers will stay for conversations with the audience.

Tickets are $20 for general admission and $10 for students. The Kimball Theatre is located at 428 W Duke of Gloucester Street in Colonial Williamsburg.
