Aerial Circus Italo Calvino in Austin, TX

cosmicomics cover

Have you ever wanted to see your favorite short story collection in aerial circus form? Well, if you live near Austin, Texas, you can head on over to the Long Center for “an aerial theatre production of COSMICOMICS, adapted from Italo Calvino’s beloved collection of short stories.”

I can’t say that I’ve seen an aerial circus adaptation of anything, much less a short story collection. But Cosmicomics is a truly fantastic collection of fabulist science fiction stories — which I’d highly recommend — so this might be worth checking out. Runs from June 21st to 29th.
