CirqueLouis and LEO Weekly – A Little Off Center present
CirqueLouis: Gravity’s VarietiesNovember 3rd and 4th Kentucky Center for the Arts
Gravity reigns over the circus artists. Every action - a rise and fall.
The circus artists play their role for the public.
A challenge to break through limitations and find brief flight.
The public reacts to them as they respond to gravity’s harsh consequences.
It pushes back against every action at every moment.
A system ruled only by making the right choice at the right time.
Please note the November 4th, 2:00 PM event is a Sensory Friendly Performance.
VIP seating is located on the stage in close proximity to the performers. Patrons seated in this section will have limited opportunities to exit the stage during the performance, outside of an emergency situation.
For the Sunday performance - please note, that VIP seating will not include sensory friendly enhancements.
and for our next original CirqueTheater production coming July 2018...

Kaleidoscope: November 3-4, 2017
In 2017 CirqueLouis returns to the Bomhard theater on November 3rd and 4th for a two night run of the original cirque theatre production “Kaleidoscope”.
Join us this fall on a colorful adventure in Kaleidoscope. Inspired by the centuries-old toy; vivid colors and shape shifting form will be brought to life by CirqueLouis’ aerialists, jugglers, and acrobats. Beyond its rich visual surface, Kaleidoscope examines the symbolism of color, the subdivision of the individual, and reintegration of parts to the collective whole.
The experience begins at 7:00 p.m. in the lobby as the CirqueLouis cast guides the audience to the theater through interactive performance.
EAST OF THE SUN: JUNE 9-10, 2017
Cool off this summer with a journey to the Arctic North as the Polar Bear Prince and his bride travel beyond the ice and snow, where only the North Wind blows.

Join us for our next original cirquetheatre production at Iroquois Amphitheater Jun 9th and 10th, 2017 with special appearance by Squallis Puppeteers!
