Falling Upward

Set against the backdrop of The Great Depression, Falling Upward is a celebration of the endurance and the creativity of the human spirit. The show is a tribute to the challenges and triumphs of everyday people as well as to iconic artists and works of the 1930s.

This exciting collaboration showcases an amazing variety of traditional and modern circus arts, including acrobatics, tight-wire walking, juggling, Chinese pole, hand balancing, aerial acts, and more.
