Celebration Barn Theater plans to presents 3AM Theater’s Mindful Manipulations at 7 p.m. Saturday, July 24, at 190 Stock Farm Road in South Paris.

Described as a “playful and comedic adventure,” the show is a fusion of dance, juggling and circus arts where everyday objects become extraordinary.

3AM Theater is comprised of award-winning artists with expertise in contemporary dance, cirque nouveau, and physical theater. Andrea Murillo, a classically-trained performer who toured with the Martha Graham Dance Company, is stylistically influenced by her work with modernist dance and contemporary theatre heavyweights. Kyle Driggs, a circus performer who was a soloist in Cirque du Soleil’s Broadway run of Paramour, specializes in a unique fusion of juggling, object manipulation, movement, and theatrical persona. Artistic and romantic partners, they are joined in the show by company member Kira Dipietrantonio.

Mindful Manipulations follows three performers journeying through a surreal world and enlivening common objects with unusual, magical stories. Umbrellas fly, brooms have a mind of their own, and juggling balls turn into music. The show merges poetic circus and narrative driven dance with the comedic artistry of Co-Director/Co-Producer Robert Post, who has performed for audiences in countless settings including Broadway’s New Victory Theatre, the Big Break Festival in Moscow, Festival Internacional Chihuahua in Mexico, New York’s Lincoln Center Institute and many more.

Tickets cost $16 for adults, $14 for seniors (60-plus), and $8 for children. Bring your own chair, or purchase tickets early for limited reserved seating. Tickets are general admission.
