There's a reason contemporary circus is flourishing. A reason we're flocking to experience this exhilarating artform. While we're constantly bombarded with monstrous dinosaurs, and talking fish, live circus uncomplicates it all. With it's purity, stunning physicality, beauty and grace, it returns us to a simpler time, and rekindles our humanity. Welcomed breath of relief, in the otherwise frenzied chaos. Breath of relief, just around the corner!
The City of Maribyrnong (AKA 'Festival City') stands tall as a long term advocate and supporter of the arts.
