Dusting off some rarely seen and discarded pieces of acrobatic performance, Almanac company members Nicole Burgio, Ben Grinberg, and Lauren Johns, along with associate artists and special guests, share the shit they’ve been hiding. Expect heartfelt acrobatic duets that never quite made it to the MainStage, along with that thing they made that time they thought reverse stripping was a really good idea.
