PREPOSTEROUS! A Theatrical Clown Circus

Masks are required for this in-person event.

A SOPHISTICATED, FAMILY-FRIENDLY, POCKET-SIZED THEATRICAL CLOWN CIRCUS!

These charming VINTAGE clowns play circus ANIMALS, sing as a HUMAN CALLIOPE, do the classic circus MIRROR ROUTINE, invent a number of RIDICULOUS “entrées”, perform LIVE MUSIC, and execute a very satisfying SLOW MOTION number involving a PIE!

PREPOSTEROUS! premiered in the summer of 2017 at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival and has been performed at The National Theater as part of their Saturday Morning family series. Now it is ready to hit the road! Just like the real circus.

Tickets $20 General Admission; $10 Seniors, Veterans, Under 16. Click here.

Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium

Throughout innovative choreography, aerial work and theater, VF Dance Theater is excited to show its new work about how memories—even the hard ones—can keep the ones we love alive. Based on a true story, the show raises awareness for Breast cancer using the arts. However it is not about Death, but It’s about how a strong spirit can never really be extinguished. It’s about a family coping, healing, and moving forward. In conjunction with a book that was written with the show “Balou the Comforter” the company hopes to offer HOPE and healing to those battling with cancer and their loved ones.

In this (slightly) deranged (new) annual aerial tradition, UpSpring explores what would happen if the Nutcracker took place on Halloween. Zombies, snow ghosts, and sea monsters dance and dangle from the ceiling. Does it make any sense? No! And that’s why we love it!
