Cirkus Theatre Collaboration Between UNCSA and Cirque du Soleil Is In Third Season

Nisshoku presents a young boy and his escape from the reality of his own broken home. He creates an imaginary world where he’s called upon to teach the sun and moon to co-exist in harmony before the earth is destroyed. Red Balloon draws from Japanese Noh theater in showing how an orphan boy rediscovers the beauty of childhood. Cirkus Theatre, the unique collaboration between Cirque du Soleil and their longtime partner University of NC School of the Arts, is now in its third season. Each of the all-student run productions are now in their 9th month and ready to share with the world. UNCSA School of Drama student, actor Alex Bodine, and UNCSA School of Dance alumnus, contemporary dancer Emily Chamberlin spoke with me about Cirkus Theatre Project and they were joined by UNCSA Director of Scenic Design, and Cirkus Project Director John Coyne.  

Cirkus Theatre Performances are Friday night, August 22nd at 7:00pm and Saturday, August 23rd at 2:00 & 7:00 in the DeMille Theater on the UNCSA campus.
