The project also combines two major functions: local artistic collaboration and also participants from our social outreach program in one major large scale cirquetheatre production. CirqueLouis is spearheading this effort in our city and to date are the only successful circus arts program in the city partnering the major branches of the company and fusing them together to create new, innovative and original performance art pieces - with all local cast - to our city whop has celebrated this unique performance arts.
"East OF The Sun" is the new cirquetheatre production put on by CirqueLouis with a local cast of 42 performing artists that helps the Louisville art scene by (once again) bridging multiple different art forms. In the past, CirqueLouis has worked with local visual artist Julia Davis for our promotional images the past two original cirquetheatre shows and to help promote the local arts scene, and to help add value to their shows. This performance is no different. In "East OF The Sun" CirqueLouis has a special guest appearance by local favorite Squallis Puppeteers to help support this local organization and to give the audience an even more unique performance. Squallis Puppeteers will be collaborating with us to bring the troll city to life in our unique adaptation of this story, which will offer another dynamic element to the performance. This is an amazing opportunity for Louisville to be able to enjoy and support multiple different local artists in one performance.
