Circa, Carnival of the Animals

March 16, 2018, 7:30 PM
Alice Jepson Theatre, Modlin Center for the Arts

“Our zebras juggle and flip… Our kangaroos skip and somersault… We’ve elephants with street-cred and rhythm… And even our dinosaur bones shake, clatter, and roll to the music.” – Yaron Lifschitz, artistic director

The lines between movement, dance, theatre, and circus are beautifully blurred by the Circa carnival and its whimsical tales of creatures of land and sea, who tumble, fly, leap, and spin their way through the many wondrous worlds of the animal kingdom. Carnival of the Animals whisks you away on a thrilling escapade inspired by the music of Camille Saint-Saëns. In a delightful salute to feathers, fur, and fins, Circa’s acrobats bring this classical music suite to life for a new generation of circus, music, and animal-lovers. A work of sophisticated and delightful family entertainment, it is both contemporary and old-world while it amazes, amuses, and uplifts.
