Have you ever imagined starting a new life? FAQ Circus’ production of “Running” was an exploration into what it means to leave behind the familiar and explore the unknown. Running from the mundane to the cadence of mystery, every step a discovery beating the drum of possibility. Running towards an alternative reality, free to forge a new identity. Running wild…
Created and directed F.A.Q. co-founder and Round Lake native Aaron M. Marquise, the hour-long modern circus show combined acrobatics, theater and dance in the fabulously funky, circular and minimally heated Gasholder Building in Troy, for three performances during one of February’s legendary cold spells, but judging by the crowds, it was well worth braving the way-below-freezing temperatures.
