Re-Created: Rituals of Winter
By Constructive Interference
Re-Created includes stories and memories from our pasts, exploring what it means to grow up and live in different communities during these cold dark months. Circus infused with theater, dance, and storytelling, this is a show you wont want to miss.
About The Company
Constructive Interference is a company created by Eliana Perlmutter, Mara Rico, Meghan McClure, and Sequoia Allen. Each member brings their own experience to the group from dance pole, gymnastics, partner dance, traditional and contemporary circus. The four producers met in 2021 during the Elements Training Program at The Circus Project. Creating their end of year show formed a bond between them and a passion to continue creating together. Bringing their backgrounds together creates a unique style to their shows. "Transatlanticism: A Circus Tribute" is their first production.

Indigenous tribes and bands have been with the lands that we inhabit today throughout Oregon and the Northwest since time immemorial and continue to be a vibrant part of the region today. We would like to express our respect to the First Peoples of this land.
It is important that we recognize and honor the ongoing legal and spiritual relationship between the land, plants, animals, and people indigenous to this city we now call Portland. The interconnectedness of the people, the land, and the natural environment cannot be overstated; the health of one is necessary for the health of all. We recognize the pre-existing and continued sovereignty of the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde, Cayuse, Umatilla, Walla Walla, Cowlitz, Clackamas, and the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians who have ties to this place and thank them for continuing to share their traditional ecological knowledge and perspective on how we might care for one another and the land, so it can take care of us. We must not forget that this land was taken through theft, genocide, and forced treaty. It is our responsibility to uplift and make reparations to native communities, and break the continuing cycles of colonial oppression and violence. Please take a moment to donate to the Native American Youth and Family Center (NAYA) to support the community or share this resource if you are unable to donate.
