Horne brings us the twisted beats, and the circus feats are care of Simone Marina Lazar, contortionist, ballerina and aerialist. Her first entrance is the best I’ve seen all festival, but the part of her act that impressed me most was her aerial hoop work. I was surprised how intimate a space the Annex Theatre suddenly seemed with her suspended just above the downstage edge. If I’m honest, the comedy and raps weren’t for me, (though that is more a reflection of my taste than Horne’s skill) but the aerials are worth the price of admission.
