Breck announces lineup for 2017 International Arts Festival in August
Inspired by themes of environment and mountain culture, a 10-day multi-arts festival will bring together an eclectic mix of music, dance, film, visual arts and family entertainment from Aug. 11-20 in Breckenridge.
The 2017 Breckenridge International Festival of Arts will feature performances and exhibitions by Australian digital artist Craig Walsh with the U.S. premiere of his renowned tree-projection artwork; the interactive design installation Los Trompos by contemporary Mexican designers Héctor Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena; the 30-plus member avant-garde musical troupe Itchy-O; a screening of Charlie Chaplin’s “The Gold Rush,” accompanied live by the Breckenridge Music Festival Orchestra; and a work entitled “Ants by Polyglot Theatre” that brings giant insects into a public space for a mix of roving performance and large-scale interaction with kids and adults.
Other pieces of the lineup include a return engagement by the Dutch performance troupe Close-Act Theatre with their new street spectacles of “Birdmen and PerQ”; violinist, banjo player and neo-folk songstress Rhiannon Giddens; and the internationally recognized Australian company Casus Circus with the U.S. premiere of their thrilling new acrobatic show, Driftwood.
