Menacing Puppets and Curtains in Love

posted by on May 9 at 11:08 AM

I went to see Aurelia’s Oratorio the other night, with about eight other picky people, and we all liked it far more than we thought we would. (The pot probably helped.)

The Oratorio (as she said in this slightly prickly Slog interrogation) is a string of short cirque vignettes about the world being upside-down and backwards.

Our favorite bits: Curtains pawing each other, menacing (and suicidal) puppets, a coat that attacks its owner, a smoking baby, and the world’s simplest, stupidest, best joke involving a fan.

It runs through this weekend. See it if you can.

Agreed. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Yes, a splendid show. And I'm surprised no one has yet mentioned the lithe Jaime Martinez, who gets his shirt torn off several times during the show.
