Once Upon a Circus

Want to hear a bedtime story? Are you ready? Don’t be (too) afraid…

Once Upon a Time, in an expansive and enchanted forest, there lived a Brother and a Sister. When their dear mother dies of illness (as mothers tend to do in these stories) and their father remarries an evil Witch of the forest (as Fathers almost always do in these stories) they have no choice left but to brave the dark maze of branches and dangers lurking in the shadows to seek their freedom. But what are our young heroes to do when the evil behind them foretells only more challenges to come? Turn the page to find out…

Aerialogy, Bloomington Acro, and FlowMotion Events are proud to bring you this dark twist on a coming of age tale with equal parts underdog oomph and unforgiving Grimm-spiration. This cirque-ified fantasy tale is sure to impress and inspire with (almost always) death-defying aerial and acrobatic feats, mesmerizing ground acts.
