Weaving a poetic vocabulary of acrobatic movement and storytelling, this intimate, highly-physical play tells the tale of one woman, lost between the uncharted waters of her grief and the shores of her joyful memories following the disappearance of her soul-mate. Developed as Artists in Residence at the San Francisco Circus Center and premiered at DIVAFest in 2016, Terra Incognita: Through The Waves has moved audiences with it’s gritty and honest portrayal of loss. Created, directed and performed by three women.

About the Company:
Founded in 2013, UpLift Physical Theatre is a collaborative of actor-acrobats trained in ensemble-based physical theatre at Dell’Arte International. Pushing the edge of human ability, UpLift’s unique style uses the momentum and visceral engagement of our living bodies to create original works that explore the physical truths of gravity, emotion, and endurance.

As an ensemble of actors and theatre-makers we seek to expose hidden human realities through the intimacy of the theatre. We use real physical effort and risk, pushing ourselves to our physical limits onstage in order to discover authentic connections with each other and the audience. We employ heightened forms of expression such as acrobatics, dance, and movement-based stories that are living, vital, and universally human. We uphold that the primary function of the theatre is to arouse and enliven the relationship of the body to the human spirit which is urgent and necessary in the state of our existence.
