A New Cirque Tour

Combining two circus traditions — clowning and acrobatics — with Broadway theatrics and the European style of circus, Cirque Europa features a group of award-winning acrobats, clowns and circus artists from Russia who've come together to perform for American audiences. The debut tour brings its collection of talents to a Clearwater stage near you. Highlights of the show include The Toryeaye Troupe (otherwise known as "The Akishin Show"), a theater company that executes comical acrobatics (from jump roping and chair balancing to clown wrestling), juggling and much more; Alexandra "Sasha" Fidosseyeva, an aerialist acrobat who's been practicing gymnastics since she was 5 years old; and high-wire-artist-turned-strongman Gyuliverd.
