Come one, come all! Centered on a freestanding aerial sculpture, the acrobats, contortionists and dexterous jugglers of Nimble Arts create a gravity-defying dreamworld in Mirage! A Circus Life. Audience members of all ages are drawn into an alternate reality constructed through poetry, music and stunning physical feats, where performers manipulate the laws of physics with jaw-dropping results. Boasting talent from renowned outfits such as Cirque du Soleil, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, the eight-person, Brattleboro-based ensemble inspires endless shock and awe. Trapeze artists, aerialists and clowns present a high-flying exploration of identity, community and diversity at the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center.
