A mind-bending, funny, surreal, and surprisingly touching work, LEO challenges the senses through the clever interplay of acrobatic physical theatre and video projection.
Directed by the Montréal actor and director Daniel Brière, and based on an original idea by the multi-talented performer Tobias Wegner, LEO is now touring in countries all around the world, dazzling audiences and critics from New York to Berlin, from Melbourne to Hong Kong with stops in Montréal, Moscow, and London along the way.
Made possible by the Mary Lou Aleskie Initiative for Enterprise and Opportunity.
A Celebratory Dinner, Performance, and Dessert Reception
The Festival culminates this year with a celebratory evening and farewell to Mary Lou Aleskie, groundbreaking Executive Director of the Festival for 11 years. Your Lux & Gravitas ticket includes a roaming dinner at Yale’s Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library with artists and special guests close to Mary Lou; a premium seat for the evening’s gravity-defying circus performance LEO; and a dessert reception and champagne toast after the show at The Study.
