EQUINOX the Show
Equinox the Show is a European-style theatrical circus about celebration of the equinox, and the perfect balance of day and night.
Remix is an exploration of the circular world of pop music and culture and a sonic journey into the explosive popularity of the remix culture.
The timeless musical hits of both Broadway and West End theater are performed live on stage by the cast as they reminisce their favorite performances in an old historic theater.
The pulsating rhythms of night and day focus on the balanced forces that bring forth the sharing of the sky by light and darkness during the equinox. Instrumented discord appears throughout the soundscape in unusual performances of the percussion and electric guitar tempered with ethereal choral backing vocals, sustained strings instruments, and enchanting woodwinds.
