In the Alzheimer’s haze that envelops us, the five acrobats and actors of the Poivre Rose Company are generously committed to helping us get our memory back. On stage, accessories and clothes pile up, like the mismatched reminiscences of anonymous individuals. Their show is packed with genre-busting burlesque and poetic scenes without any downtime, subtly borrowing techniques from cinema and fine art. When the circus numbers start in earnest, they transport us thanks to their technique and accuracy, culminating in a powerful final aerobatic number on a Korean cradle.
