The Cabiri presents Alchymia, a theatrical aerial dance performance inspired by the four phases of alchemical transformation. Our venue for this new work takes us back to our roots in southwest Seattle – Youngstown Cultural Arts Center.
At the alchemist’s workbench, a journey through darkness and into the light begins. From the cold, black phase of nigredo to the culmination of the process in the fiery, passionate rubedo, join us on a journey of physical and spiritual transformation. We will explore the alchemical process through the lens of both the ancient art and science of alchemy and the modern Jungian interpretation of growth within the human psyche. Prepare to be mesmerized and enchanted by our aerialists and acrobats as they dance the unfolding of this magical process, moving through the phases of black, white, yellow, and red.
Alchymia contains subject matter that may not be appropriate for audience members under the age of 12.
Audience members are required to wear a face mask that covers their nose and mouth while inside the venue at all times.
