Leaps of Faith and Other Mistakes

Philadelphia’s genre-defying Almanac Dance Circus Theatre presents Leaps of Faith and Other Mistakes - an absurd and intimate tapestry of sublime human idiocy, isolationist seafarer cults, and the kinds of people that devote their lives to becoming acrobats. Four hobbyists find each other alone in a world of weirdos, and push themselves to be “exceptional in every moment.” As they purify themselves and adopt an all-white uniform, their trusty sofa becomes a portal for exploration and they set out on the high-seas to leave the world of fast-food and normal people behind. But all is not as they imagined it would be, and the audience is left contemplating what we do when we find ourselves lost at sea.
