Circo Lucido Flying Cabaret

May 21, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$10 - $32

Type: Performance Art

This Event: May be of interest to the LGBTQ community

Experience the joy of flight with Cycropia Aerial Dance in its upcoming production, Circo Lucido – Flying Cabaret, May 20-21 at UW–Madison’s Wisconsin Union Theater. Audiences will have three chances to see this unique performance, on Friday, May 20, at 7:30 pm, and Saturday, May 21, at 2 and 7:30 pm.

This performance will immerse audience members in a magical, illuminated world, exploring concepts of light and brilliance in eight original pieces using the company’s signature low-flying trapezes, aerial hoops, ropes, a dodecahedron, and other custom-designed aerial apparatus.

Cabaret acts, featuring some stellar, Madison-based guest performers as well as Cycropia’s aerial dancers, will add variety – including acrobatics, hoop dancing, and more. “A cabaret hates rules or being narrowly defined,” explains Circo Lucido’s administrative director, Nataraj Hauser. “Expect a cross-fertilization of music, comedy, variety, circus, performance art, theater, dance, and of course, aerial.”

Known for its unique blend of aerial artistry, circus-style acrobatics, and dance, Cycropia has been entertaining Madison audiences for over 25 years. To learn more about Cycropia, visit www.cycropia.org.
