Event Description

theOTHER is the newest creation of acrobatic performance artist Cohdi Harrell.  Queering the concept of ‘outsider,’ and paying homage to the states of chaos and silence that hold us tight, theOTHER uses aerial acrobatics, film, dance and poetry to shed light on the invisible environments that bind us.

Cohdi Harrell is a native New Mexican performance artist, born and raised in Santa Fe. Coming from a backwoods history of training in circus and martial arts, he has spent the past thirteen years crafting, improvising, producing, and examining the articulation and potential of the human body.  A primarily self taught trapeze artist and an untrained dancer, his unique approach to acrobatics and movement has brought him international acclaim; being hailed as “vital to the evolution of contemporary circus in America.” His work takes him around the world.  Cohdi's work has been featured in the New York Times, National Geographic and CNN among others. He is a 2013 recipient of the Kindle Foundation’s ‘Makers Muse Award’. For the past seven years, he has worked as the co-director of RICOCHET, a circus of two, whose theatrical circus productions have toured to sold out audiences and standing ovations across the country.  When not performing, Cohdi teaches acrobatics and improvisation across America and Europe as well as being the Director of “Circus Across Cultures;” teaching circus and physical theatre to children in India.
