Circus Harmony's The Balancing Act October 10
By: Circus Harmony
From their living rooms, backyards, bedrooms, and local parks, Circus Harmony students and alumni created new acts and will tell the stories of how they see what is going on in the world right now from the pandemic to the presidential election to racial justice. Circus Harmony thinks you will be inspired by their strength, grace, and resilience.
Tickets are FREE but registration is required to get the link on the day of the show. The show is something the whole family can watch together. It features great circus acts, wonderful young people, and some insight on keeping your balance in this unbalanced time. Like the circus itself, the show is daring and funny, exciting and entertaining, heart-stopping and heart-warming.
Examples of acts:
Siblings Anna and Oliver 14 and 19 years old. In their act, they are wearing shirts they got while involved in local Black Lives Matter protest marches. Their piece is a beautiful partner acrobatic act that they created, and their narrative talks about how grateful they were for the time they got to spend together this year because of the pandemic.
Alumni Claire Wallenda. Claire married Alex Wallenda and now walks wire with the Flying Wallendas. She literally talks about pandemic positives as she is balanced on the wire.
These are only a small sample of the Circus Harmony family who the audience will meet in The Balancing Act: Walking the Pandemic Tightrope, on October 10 at 7 pm CT. This is a show unlike any they have ever performed before for a time unlike any they have ever lived in before. Tickets are free but you need to register at www.circusharmony.org.
