Circus sans animals
If family-friendly fun is what you’re after this weekend, don’t miss Cirque Italia, an animal-free traveling “water circus.” Cirque Italia, which has been performed internationally more than 1,000 times, takes place under a swirling blue and white tent featuring a one-of-a-kind stage filled with 35,000 gallons of water. First conceived in 2012 by Manual Rebecchi, a direct descendant of Europe’s up-and-coming circus scene, Cirque Italia is described as being “more aligned with Broadway than the traditional American circus.” Cirque Italia features more than 30 talented performers and artists from 25 countries disguised as mermaids, dinosaurs and other creatures performing acrobatics, dance, contortion, BMX, roller skating and other acts that push the physical boundaries of human ability. Cirque Italia is appropriate for all ages, and a free children’s admission ticket is offered with the purchase of one full-price adult ticket for levels two or three. Tickets range from $10-50 dollars, and may be purchased at the on-site box office, online at http://cirqueitalia.com or by phone call or text message at 941-704-8572.
