Johnny Romeo: The Acrobats
Cirque du Soleil conjures visions of visually sumptuous spectacles, where performers defy imagination with fascinating feats of exhilarating skill and effortless grace. We often get so absorbed in the exhilaration of these performances that we forget that these acrobats and gymnasts are real people, with human doubts and anxieties.
In his latest works, as part of the Art of Cirque du Soleil exhibition, Johnny Romeo captures the quiet, human moments that are often lost in the gleeful tumult of the circus – the anxiety of bungling a leap, the tenderness of a reassuring hand. Captivatingly bold yet endearingly tender, Romeo’s introspective works create a visual dialogue in which the audience are moved to consider the performer inside the performance.
Johnny Romeo’s ‘The Acrobats’ will be part of THE ART OF CIRQUE DU SOLEIL Group Show @ 19Karen, Gold Coast, Australia.
The Sofitel Gold Coast Broadbeach will host the exhibition.
Opening Night: Friday May 31st 2013 – 6-8pm.
