The Yard at Chicago Shakespeare

A WorldStage event
from Colombia
directed by Felicity Simpson

A non-stop circus party that puts a smile on your face

THE STAGE (U.K.)

An adrenaline-fueled mix of strength, skill, and daring…
a great night out.

TIME OUT LONDON

 

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, this high-energy spectacle is packed with explosive power and raw skill. Jaw-dropping feats from aerialists, acrobats, and contortionists are interwoven with live music and dance to create a genre-spanning performance that jumps from hip-hop and electro cumbia to drum and bass. Acts by top graduates of Colombia's national circus school, Circo Para Todos (Circus for All), offer a glimpse of the future of this reinvigorated, reinvented art form. This unforgettable North American debut is the culminating event of the second annual Destinos – Chicago International Latino Theater Festival.
