Aura CuriAtlas visits Chesapeake Academy

"[The performance] was outstanding and I appreciate their devotion, commitment, and true love for what they are doing. The pure magic of strength reaching beyond the capability of their bodies was a sight to behold. The artistry of the stories in a dream state made you think WHAT IF? It unveiled the truth on how we feel and view ordinary everyday items and personalities. Storytelling in any form brings out the best in each and every one of us.  It is how you develop the character of the person you are portraying that defines who you are as a person.  Aura CuriAtlas gave us the opportunity to think outside the box, to look, see and hope—I’m next!"

"Harrisonburg City Public School students had the distinct privilege to have Aura CuriAtlas in residence to present programming for students in grades 6-12.  The performers, from the moment we began to plan for their arrival, were gracious, professional, personable, and a joy to work with.  Our students were in awe of their unique and creative work, and ranked it as one of the best artistic events of the year.  Their workshops with our high school students challenged and pushed students to get out of their comfort zone, create something personal and unique, and carry it with them for their next creative endeavor.  We look forward to having Aura CuriAtlas back with us in the years to come!!"

"I really loved the light and playful spirit of the online classes -- I thrive on that. The classes I’ve taken with AC are full of delicious explorations. I always seem to find new ways to move and inhabit myself."

"We were in awe of the performance and also appreciate your interaction with our students.  I'm so glad they were there to see all of you!"

Our audience “certainly enjoyed your performance a great deal.  I saw a number of the students there this morning and they were still talking about it!   You all made quite an impression."

"I am delighted to say that the performance by Aura CuriAtlas kept the entire group entertained and I give complete credit to them for their professionalism and engaging performance.  In today’s world of video games and handheld technology, it was my wish that the children would enjoy the true performance of people on stage telling a story using minimal audio support. My wish came true as the children watched and laughed and clapped in excitement over adults working together on stage to tell stories with their body movements and facial expressions."

                                                                                               ~ Katherine Maddox, LeafSpring School

"The kids were very engaged throughout the entire show, and used their imaginations in several scenes to "see" the dream!  The children's attention was captured from the first moment … The agility and acrobatic/dance skills of the performers was outstanding.  The group offered a question and answer period after the show.  The quality of the questions our students asked after the show proved to us how interested in the program they were."

                                                                      ~ Robin Blake, Rappahannock Foundation for the Arts


“Aura CuriAtlas Physical Theatre provided a compelling evening of storytelling and movement, ideal for curious children and adults alike. The combination of creative, contemporary movement and physical storytelling was tremendously engaging. …  The group is a delight to host and work with, offering the highest mark in integrity and the art of contemporary physical movement.”
