The multi-skilled artists of Australia’s Circa have been pushing the frontier of circus arts for nearly 15 years—blurring the lines of creative movement, dance, and theatre to “redraw the limits to which circus can aspire” (The Age). Camille Saint Saëns’ beloved musical suite, Carnival of the Animals, inspires a theatrical escapade that celebrates creatures of both land and sea with acrobats, singers, musicians, and playful animations that bring to life tumbling kangaroos, juggling zebras, and dinosaurs that rock and roll.
Recommended for ages 3 and up
In Circa's first Krannert Center encounter, it will dazzle audiences with two programs—Carnival of the Animals, and for adult audiences, Humans.
