Antique Matter

When the world is about to end, why not live dangerously?  With fire breathers, sword swallowers, contortionists and aerial acrobats, Cirque Skeletique is welcoming the apocalypse with a spectacle of dark desires and fanciful fears:

Cirque Skeletique vacillates between conscious and subconscious experiences, portraying the final canto of a dream in security culture infested metropolis, manifesting amidst a city on the periphery of apocalypse; alienated people oppressed by fascism face their dreams, fears, and darker inclinations.

Presenting their ode to mankind with Cirque Skeletique is Antique Matter, featuring members of TJ Kong & The Atomic Bomb, Pig Iron Theater Company’s Twelfth Night and the West Philadelphia Orchestra.  The gathering will take place at Ruba Club-Studios this Friday, December 21st at 8:00 p.m.  Tickets are $10 in advance (available here) and $12 at the door.  Below, watch Antique Matter perform at the Highwire Gallery in Philadelphia.
