TORONTO, ON (April 20, 2015) - HarbourKIDS is pleased to present the annual Toronto International Circus Festival, co-produced with Zero Gravity Circus, May 16-18. This three-day festival promises the fascinating spectacle of the circus for those curious enough to venture through.
"This year we really wanted to celebrate all aspects of circus culture and inspire kids to really feel they've run away with us to the circus," explains HarbourKIDS Toronto International Circus Festival Programmer, Allison Cummings. "We want kids, and parents, to embrace their freaky, curious, free and independent selves, to celebrate their uniqueness."
From the traditional to the strange side-show circus, HarbourKIDS celebrates it all. Featuring the Petless Petting Zoo, our version of the cabinet of curiosity, to the Sweet Variety of Circus hosted by Kristian Reimer on the Stage in The Round. There is something to charge every creative spirit.
- Zero Gravity - the main stage showcase, featuring an amazing assortment of daring and mesmerizing circus professionals. Aerial acrobatics, hilarious comical antics and high powered acrobatic dance.
- Sideshow Alley - Find the inner sideshow character that is yearning to be free. Five contemporary artists will work with you to bring that character to life.
- Wow Hoop Vau Vanne Baby Circus - All the way from Finland, this performance group offers a circus specifically made for children 18 months and under.
- Corpus Dance Projects - Camping Royale - Two queens from a different time go on an absurd camping trip, far away from court. Without servants, they will have to use their creativity to survive in the wild. Their castle is reduced to basic tents, royal dances have to be executed on grass, one needs to fish for lunch and cope with the unpredictable whims of mother nature... A charming and interactive adventure for all ages.
Harbourfront Centre is a Canadian charity operating the 10 prime acres of Toronto's central waterfront as a free and open public site. We celebrate the multiplicities of cultures that comprise Canada and enliven the city through the creative imaginations of artists from across the country and around the globe.
