Magic Circle Cycle (MCC), a collaboration with Kalei Yamanoha & the Imaginists, is a theatrical event exorcising age old cycles as well as their offspring—current events. Played out in four movements MCC excavates old narratives & invents new stories. Inspired by, and in conversation with, Brecht’s Caucasian Chalk Circle, Genet’s The Maids, the harrowing & magic journeys of female protagonists in fairy tales and the current political moment, the piece continues to evolve into a new hybrid form of storytelling; an invented ritual intervention, song cycle, biting satire and poem-play. Kalei Yamanoha plays the lyrical spine on banjo, piano, accordion and base drum. The songs are spells.

With: Alia Beeton, Liz Jahren, Brent Lindsay, Rachel Quintana, Amy Pinto, Michelle Torres & Kalei Yamanoha.
