Burien’s annual FREE Strawberry Festival will be in just three weeks from now (Sat. June 20th-Sun. June 21st) at the Burien Community Center and Dottie Harper Park, and since we’re its “official blog,” we’d like to introduce you to some of the cool featured performers you’ll see.
This week â€“ sexy acrobat troupe The Cabiri , who will appear Sunday June 21st from 11:30am – 5:00pm by the Main Stage:
The Cabiri were formed in 1999 as theatrical emissaries of The Anunnaki Project, a curatorial organization that seeks to preserve the mythologies of cultures that have passed into antiquity. In that time we have traveled the world presenting our work to diverse audiences. We are eternally dancing the dream and we seek to bring you along on our adventure!
In 2005, The Cabiri began a formal apprentice program for prospective troupe members, and have provided training for up-and-coming aerialists and physical theater performers in the techniques we use to manifest the unique characters we bring to life. As the troupe’s instruction and apprentice program has grown, so has our capacity to tell tales on an epic scale.
Using physical theater, dance, aerial arts, fire performance, stilts, puppetry and a little fairy dust that is our secret recipe, Cabiri performers enrapture the audience and transport them to worlds our technology-focused society has lost sight of under modern-day stress. We take our audiences to misty nights beneath the waxing crescent moon, worlds where anything is possible, and realms that remind us that we never have to lose the mysteries we knew before arriving in this mortal coil.
We invite you to come with us as we dive into the dusty tomes of the past. Our adventure is just beginning and the magic only grows as we delve deeper into the world of dream. We have spent our lives dancing in Cabiria, we invite you to come along for a spell, you can stay for as long as you desire…
We’ll have a booth at the fest (full schedule here: www.burienstrawberryfestival.org ), where we’ll be blogging live, demonstrating how we do what we do with a behind-the-scenes look and much more, so be sure to mark your calendars!
