Sushi Presents Zirk Ubus Adrift


Always at the forefront of creative experimentation, this month Sushi welcomes Zirk Ubu to its downtown space. Part circus and part mystery cult, Zirk Ubu is known for taking audiences on kaleidoscopic journeys through emotional landscapes that are, by turns, sensual, absurdist, and surreal. Adrift incorporates all the diverse, nine-member collective’s skills, ranging from aerials and acrobatics, to juggling, masking, puppetry, and object improvisation, as well as video and performance art. Directed by contemporary choreographer and UCSD professor of dance Liam Clancy, Adrift moves Zirk Ubu in a new performative direction. “The title Adrift plays with the idea of being unmoored, of letting go and allowing yourself to be swept away by forces outside your control,” says Clancy. Adds Zirk Ubu cast member, Richard Cohen, paraphrasing Lao Tzu, “When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”  


Founded in 1980, Sushi is a San Diego-based nonprofit multi-disciplinary presenting organization, which cultivates alternative voices in the contemporary arts. Adrift shows at 8pm on November 19-21; and 7pm on November 22. Tickets are $20 for the general public and $15 for members and students, with a “pay what you can” option on Thursday, November 19 only. Tickets can be purchased in advance at www.inticketing.com/events/58735/ADRIFT. (619/235-8466, www.sushiart.org)
