About the Company: Aszure Barton and Artists make their Ohio debut on Saturday, October 29 at 8:00pm at the Ohio Theatre at PlayhouseSquare. The company will perform Les Chambres des Jacques (Jack in the Box). Originally created for Les Ballets Jazz de Montreal, it is a work full of surprise and humor danced to the music of Vivaldi and The Cracow Klezmer Band. They will also perform Barton's critically-acclaimed Busk, a fascinating work that explores aspects of what it means to perform. Set to thrilling Gypsy and choral music, Busk features engaging solos contrasted with powerful, unison group dance. Busk combines street performers with hooded monks, Swedish chants and acrobatics to create a witty, lively, highly original evening of dance.
