Circus troupe presents an inaugural show

BRATTLEBORO — The New England Center for Circus Arts presents an inaugural show in its new custom trapezium on Saturday, Nov. 11, at 7:30 p.m.

The building has been open to classes since June, but this is the first time a show has been put on under the vast high-ceilinged space.

LAVA will bring its newest work, "A Goddessey" for one show only. It is a 75-minute piece that takes the form of a survival story. A Traveler journeys from a gray and patriarchal present to a rainbow-colored feminist future with the help of ancestors and guides, geologic and otherwise. All ages welcome — some mature content.
