ST. JOHNSBURY – Catamount Arts has announced registration for Cirque Us Family Circus Workshop, Saturday, April 22, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., at the Catamount ArtPort in the Green Mountain Mall.
Cirque Us Family Circus Workshop covers human pyramids, tumbling, juggling, acrobatics, and clowning for the whole family. Taught by members of Cirque Us, a Boston-based circus entertainment and education company, the workshop encourages participants to flip, fall, and clown around with real circus performers.
Cirque Us is a Boston-based circus entertainment and education company that produces full-length original works and curates customized circus experiences, including camps and workshops, for people of all ages and abilities. Formed by eight friends who toured together with Circus Smirkus, Cirque Us now draws performers, directors, educators, technicians and choreographers from all over the country to bring the most passionate, committed, and talented circus artists to the hearts of local communities through performance and education.
The fee for Cirque Us Family Circus Workshop is $60 and includes admission to “One Man’s Trash: A Repurposed Circus,” also on April 22, at 7 p.m. Payment plans and scholarships are available; call Anne at (802) 748-2600, extension 109, for more information. Participants must bring a water bottle and wear clothes that are comfortable for moving.
Following the workshop, Cirque Us will perform “One Man’s Trash: A Repurposed Circus,” at the ArtPort, at 7 p.m. Originally produced in 2016, the show is back for its third national tour following the success of its 2022 revival.
