Twist of Fate Friday and Saturday, January 22 and 23, 7:00pm. A true story about overcoming obstacles told through aerial dance and theatre. This is Angola Murdoch’s true story beginning with her diagnosis of scoliosis, surgery, and recovery. At the age of nine, Angola began competing in gymnastics and at twelve, she was diagnosed with scoliosis. Due to the severity of her condition, it was decided that she should undergo spinal surgery. The surgery consisted of fusing her spine and the installation of two metal rods to support the fusion. The show continues with her story up to the present day and her life as a professional circus aerialist. Told through a fusion of disciplines including theatre, dance, and aerial circus, this unique story and Angola’s solo performance will motivate and capture the audience. Tickets $10.
