In the tradition of circus, the 50 Sense Circus will bring you thrills and chills with daring acts of skill and ingenuity…but not by ingénues. These powerful performers are in their middle years (40 to late 50’s!) and they will be rocking it with depth of character! Set in the circus ring at Open Space for the Arts and Community, audience members will be treated to a hybrid theatrical circus with triple trapeze, dervish Spanish web spinning, intricate falls on tissu, and banshee-like bungee-ing. Not to mention sideshow acts of accordion expertise, strip tease, spoken word, oracle conjuring and roller skate conquering. These seasoned performers have inventoried the stories they’ve been told and are ready to give you their 50 cents on life and death, courage and fear, abundance and scarcity through sneaky deep comedy, visual poetry, and a 50 item “To Do” list. This is a journey led by women in the deep strength of their performing years, who aren’t afraid to let you know that the real price of admission to a great life is the admittance that you are more powerful than you imagine!
