As pioneers in original aerial theatre, Paper Doll Militia is known for their innovative approach to choreography and poignant theatricality. Their pieces seamlessly weave dynamic physicality, aerial arts, and visual theatre with an emphasis on the mixture of modern and vintage media. With the inclusion of their unique invented aerial apparatus, Paper Doll Militia achieves their signature aesthetic — dreamy, whimsical, and dark.
Co-commissioned with Richmond’s own Host of Sparrows Aerial Circus and Modlin Center for the Arts, Warped asks you to stare directly into infinity and embrace the mysteries of time. Join four quirky characters as they traverse a world of suspended gears, cranks, levers, and ropes that turn like the inner mechanisms of a giant clock. Visually rich, sometimes eerie, and always existentially engaging, Warped asks: which choices determine what reality we land in?
