Kaleidoscope Limbs

For most, yoga sessions are a chakra-aligning release from tension demons. But in the peculiar world of Tripsichore, those same postures are used to further the evolution of modern dance.

These intricately choreographed vignettes harness the talents of lifelong yogis, like Tripsichore Yoga Theatre founder Edward Clark. He and his troupe balance on top of one another, folding and unfolding themselves. Soon you’re no longer watching an inverted sun salutation; you’re engrossed in a story where organisms blend together only to break back apart. It’s engaging, playful, and terribly fluid. It’s also a one-night gig. To see this foible-free human kaleidoscope, you’ll want to be at ArtServe’s auditorium (1350 E. Sunrise Blvd., Fort Lauderdale) at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, ticket in hand.

If you’d like to learn how they do it, workshops run from Friday through Sunday at Red Pearl Yoga (918 NE 20th Ave., Fort Lauderdale). Tickets can be purchased at redpearlyoga.com. Saturday’s performance is $20 in advance or $25 at the door (door sales are cash only).
Sat., Feb. 27, 7:30 p.m., 2010
