ARTFARM's Circus for a Fragile Planet is back with a brand new show which delivers a powerful package of climate science in a circus format. Professor Offli Varminhere and the Fossil Fools use comedy, acrobatics, juggling, stilting and other circus artistry to engage the audience around pressing issues facing us all today, asking questions like "what can I do to lessen the inevitable impacts of climate change on my community and the planet?"
The 70 minute performance appeals to all ages, and the show is available to tour to schools, theaters and festivals. While the show is designed to help upper elementary and middle school students understand the causes and impacts of climate change, and what we as individuals, families, schools, communities, corporations and government can do to adapt to and mitigate these impacts, it really speaks to all of us. It is a deeply relevant performance for anyone planning to live on our planet over the next 50 years.
Performances are at 2 pm & 7 pm on Saturday, February 2 at Oddfellows Playhouse in Middletown. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for kids, or $25 per family and may be purchased at oddfellowsplayhouse.ticketleap.comEducators or PTO members interested in bringing the new Circus for a Fragile Planet to your school should contact firstname.lastname@example.org -- we are happy to offer you a free ticket for one of the Saturday shows.
