The ruffle of capes; the elaborate disguises; the power of flight and host of astounding super powers... Comic books have entertained and amazed us for years and now you can watch the colour and drama be lifted from the pages and transformed into a MARVELous circus show where Wonder Woman meets Astro Boy in Sin City.
Galway Community Circus is proud to present our 2016 Black Box Theatre show CirComics on Friday the 1st and Saturday the 2nd of April. Mentored by Fidget Feet Aerial Dance Theatre, Galway Community Circus young ensemble will bring comic books to life in this original story told through a breath-taking display of aerial dance, acrobatic stunts and circus arts.
The show is created and performed by 50 Galway Community Circus members aged twelve to twenty years. For the past six weeks they have been working with top professional circus artists, musicians, dramaturge Lali Morris, light designer, make-up artist and costume designer to bring their original ideas to the stage while learning about different aspects of production.
Galway Community Circus has collaborated with Fidget Feet for the past seven years to produce an annual large scale show in the Black Box Theatre. CirComics will be the final collaboration of this type between the two companies for the foreseeable future. “This show is a testament to the brilliant creativity of our members and a celebration of the years with Fidget Feet. We’ve had so much fun at the rehearsals and the show is promising to literally blow off the roof of the Black Box!” says Galway Community Circus Director Ulla Hokkanen.
This show is funded by the Arts Council Young Ensemble Scheme and Galway City Council and supported by RTÉ Supporting the Arts.
