SUBMERGED! is a unique, provocative and educational circus which addresses environmental issues involving Water.Suitable for all ages, Circus for a Fragile
Planet SUBMERGED! features five multi-talented professional circus performers
who take the audience on a journey from our kitchen sink to the Pacific Ocean
through juggling, acrobatics, balancing, comedy, stilt dancing and slapstick
science. The hour-long circus combines breathtaking artistry with hard science
and environmental advocacy. Lobsters dance in nets tangled with plastics,
fish juggle shampoo bottles, water-bottle wielding clowns chase polluting
unicyclists, and sea nymphs on stilts dance as the sea level rises around them.
SUBMERGED! features Dic Wheeler, Megan Berritta, Maegan Fuller, Allison
McDermott, and Joel Melendez. From our own backyards to the Great
Pacific Garbage Patch, Circus for a Fragile Planet SUBMERGED! raises
many important questions about how our actions effect rivers, lakes
and oceans while also helping individuals identify ways that we each can
contribute to the well-being of the planet's water-based resources.
