The Arts Report – May 25th 2011



On Today’s Show…

Children’s Festival: Circa

Circa, an acrobatic performing company hailing from down under, reveals 46 Circus Acts in 45 minutes at annual Children’s Festival. These Aussies flip, fly, bend and juggle to perform seemingly impossible bodily feats as they battle time to finish their acts. This particular performance with delightful and funny antics is targeted for kids five and up but with their fast and exciting music score and daring acts is fun for the whole family.

Playing on various dates early next month, click here for the schedule and ticket information.
