CIRQUE DU GRAS
The underground, immersive, experimental circus collective, Cirque Du Gras, returns to Carnival combining whip-cracking contortion and fire-breathing aerials with operatic clown antics and surrealist juggling mayhem.
Composed of seasoned professionals in the circus, sideshow, vaudeville, and visual arts, Cirque Du Gras, offers an alternative to the mainstream cirque culture of today. Our raw humor and offbeat subject matter dissolve the "fourth wall," allowing audiences to discover a unique universe of whimsically disturbed characters.
Last year, during New Orleans' Mardi Gras season, we performed 8 successful shows to a packed and enthusiastic audience. People walked away pleasantly discombobulated.
This year we're leaping forward by transforming St. Roch firehouse into an immersive circus gala complete with live music, sideshow performance, carnival games, vendors, artists, Djs, dancing, and an explosively spectacular Cirque Du Gras show.
Once again scored by the three piece gypsy balkan band, G String Orchestra, Cirque du Gras' new show prequels last year's storyline with romance,danger, and comedy.
The Interpreter of Condolences

The show will run each night at The St. Roch Firehouse, from February 13th - 16th, with the carnival courtyard opening at 8:00pm and the show starting promptly at 9:00PM. Beer and wine will be served.
