Breathtaking circus stunts. Brilliant live beats. One amazing experience. Direct from a sold-out engagement at Edinburgh Festival Fringe and an acclaimed run on London's South Bank, Circolombia combines eye-popping feats by aerialists, acrobats, and contortionists with dance and live music—from hip-hop and electro cumbia to drum and bass. For just two weeks, this high-energy spectacle, packed with explosive power and raw skill, takes the stage as the culminating event of Destinos—Chicago International Latino Theater Festival. Experience the highly infectious energy and jaw-dropping talent that are the hallmarks of Circolombia’s performances.
