COMING SUMMER 2018: STEAM
Paris, 1890 – when a young, idealistic H.G. Wells has a chance encounter with the enigmatic Jules Verne, they embark on a mind-blowing, time-travelling, steam-punking, fan-fiction fantasy that will take you from the earth to the moon and back. This summer, join Circus Juventas for a trippy trip into the brilliant minds of the fathers of sci-fi. Team up with a trio of adventurers, clash with sky pirates, flee from dystopian Morlocks, and join forces with Dr. Moreau and Captain Nemo. Mysterious islands and magnificent creatures, airships and aristocrats, hot air balloons and a mad scientist, plus a few leagues under the sea (20,000 to be exact) are just a few wonders waiting to be imagined. It’s a fourth-dimension adventure you won’t want to miss, so wind your watches, and we’ll see you in the future…or was it the past?”
ANNOUNCING THE SPRING CELEBRATION 2018 THEME: CIRCUS WORLD FAIR
Since its modern origins in 18th century London and later in Philadelphia’s Rickets Circus in 1793, circus has emerged as a unique and eclectic performance art. Circus continually creates new platforms by blending dance, music, athleticism, daredevilry, staging, choreography, and costuming . It blurs the lines between theater and exhibition, artistry and craftsmanship, and old and new. Though there have been periods of ebb and flow, we are witnessing its popularity once again. Join us in celebrating a quarter-millennia of skill, innovation, and artistry during our 2018 Spring Celebration Performances!
