From the Examiner, A co-worker went to this, he was lukewarm on the experience. Did anyone here see it?<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>A new world circus<BR>BY RACHEL HOWARD<BR>Examiner Dance Critic<P> "Nouveau Cirque" may be a French term, but Keith Hennessy's newly formed, undeniably nouveau Circo Zero is quintessentially San Franciscan.<P> Don't expect lighthearted derring-do in this intimate 90-minute show, which opened June 6 and resumes a month-long initial run at Theater Artaud this weekend. There are chills and spills to be had on a modest yet satisfying scale, but the name of Hennessy's game is subversion -- even the subversion of spectacle.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="" TARGET=_blank><B>more...</B></A>

Review of the latest from Circo Zero. My good friend Emily is in this and hubby saw it last weekend. He said it was great. One of the best things he's seen in months. From the SF Weekly.

There is so much that is creatively intriguing and theatrically adventurous about Circo Zero's circus performance that you wish in the end it affected you more than it does. There is certainly plenty of acrobatic talent onstage, with several potent images to flesh out the central conceit of the body as a metaphorical statement on terror, politics, and injustice in our modern age.
