Cirrus Circus presents “Acro-Biographies”

Meet Cirrus Circus at the library as they conduct research, hunt for a good read, and find all the books they can about the physics and mathematics of juggling. Along the way they discover that books are portals to new and different worlds.

When their bumbling professor stops by, he struggles to keep himself rooted in reality rather than follow his imagination. Can they convince their professor that these other worlds are wonderful places to visit, full of amazing adventures and artistic expression?

Acro-Biographies features contortion, Geman wheel, teeterboard, duo trapeze, and more. Join Cirrus Circus as they crawl up, balance on, and flip through the pages, using their imagination and circus skill to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Our workshop will cover the fundamentals of partner trapeze, as well as introduce basic vocabulary from which to create sequences.  We will emphasize how form and timing are used to generate dynamic movement, and how moving efficiently equates to moving beautifully. Participants are encouraged to come in pairs, however solos are welcome, too.
