Circus Project Community Showcase
Join us as we embark on the timeless journey of Odysseus of Ithaca, as told by dancers, musicians, acrobats, and aerialists. Directed by Jenn Cohen with Tracy Broyles, and featuring performances by Circus Project students, graduates, and eminent guest artists including NANDA, this show is certain to astound even the most discerning of guests. Don't miss this heroic journey of discovery, triumph, and homecoming!
The Circus Project Community Showcase is the culmination of the Circus Project's yearlong performance workshop in circus and theatre arts for homeless and at-risk youth. The showcase features performances by members of the 2011 Intensive Training Company, along with special guest artists. The performance will open with a brief discussion of the show's creation process and will conclude with a question/answer session with performers. Sliding scale ticket prices ensure equal accessibility to audience members regardless of economic status.
