Chaplin

Truly a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience, Chaplin had its World Premiere in October of 2018 in Santa Barbara, receiving one of the longest standing ovations in our history! A visionary and ground-breaking production, featuring the work of three diversely talented choreographers, this journey into the mind of the creative genius of Charlie Chaplin is absolutely spellbinding. One of only a handful of dance works throughout the world that illustrates the multifaceted life of the twentieth century icon, this original production follows a young girl on an Alice-in-Wonderland-esque adventure down the cinematic rabbit hole into Chaplin's world. Transfixed by images she sees at a film festival in New York City, she is pulled into his mind, adopting his mannerisms and persona. His story then unfolds through her eyes, capturing the humor, pathos, and surreal life of the legendary filmmaker. A must-see for audiences of all ages, Chaplin is thought-provoking dance/theatre at its finest!
