Slivers of Light

SOL Final.jpg

Each year Circus Culture produces a new work of Contemporary Circus, created and performed in house! This year’s show is “Slivers of Light” an illuminating journey through the human condition. Featuring the performing talents of Ben Kaufman, Copper Santiago, Elan Reuven, Emily Healy and Kevin Flanagan with Direction by Aaron Jamieson Roberts and Technical Direction by Kiera Carman.

Through the medium of juggling, acrobatics, and aerials the performance follows several people on their journey to hold on to the light in their life. A unique artistic expression of our inner monologues, Slivers of Light is the perfect experience for first time viewer or seasoned fan alike. 

Because of the themes and tone of the piece we don’t recommend children under 12. 

Shows are March 1-4 at 7:30pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with a 2:00pm Sunday show. Tickets are $15, students $10.
