In June we always allow our Full-Time Training Program to take over Sanctuary for one night only! In a showing we call "Rough Drafts" the students present the acts that are forming from the artistic research that they have been doing in the first year of our two year professional development program. It's a sneak peek into the development of circus...and don't think for a second that you won't be blown away and you're hearts warmed in the same way that you are during "regular" Sanctuary. These are acts that have never been seen before and that have been brewing for almost a year. From swinging trapeze to badass tramp wall to wildly endearing juggling, masterfully creative aerial work and more, you might decide you have to join the circus yourself!
TWO SHOWINGS! Make sure you pick the right one! Tickets cannot be refunded or exchanged.
There's still a place you can go.
We used to flock to the old warehouse and huddle together on the floor to be delighted and free and inspired. But the wind has shifted and now we need something more.
Seek sanctuary in the old church and huddle together around tables. Whisper conspiratorial nothings to your family-in-circus and be lifted up! Commune with the wonderment of acrobats silhouetted against enormous stained glass windows. Let the saturating live music and the movement engulf you and know, here, you are safe from the reality outside our hallowed walls. We won't let you go--until it's time to go.
To maintain an intimate environment, seating for this show is extremely limited. No walkups are accepted. Seats will fill quickly. No refunds are offered.
You must pay a "seat reservation fee" to hold your seat. After the show, you may chose to donate that fee to the artist, or...walk up to us, look us in the eye, and ask for it back. We will love you either way, but you'll only get into heaven with Option 1.
