Circus Cortex – Masquerade!

April 18 @ 5:00 pm April 22 @ 5:00 pm

Behind every mask is a face and behind every face is a story..

​Every night when the clock strikes twelve, the door to an alternate reality is opened…

​You will be guided by our jolly joker who creates mischief with his ever ticking clock and you will watch as he awakens the eccentric characters of our far away realm.

​Be amazed by skills, that will make you question your own eyes, and be left in awe by costumes that are the true art of disguise.

Once the night has ended you may not remember everyone you have met, but this is a MASQUERADE’  ball that you are not likely to forget.

Directed and produced by Irina Archer and Paul Archer, the cast includes 15 Ukrainian performers, adding a layer of poignancy to the show and its theme. The performances are awe-inspiring and, because the show takes place in a smaller-scale big top, it has a surprisingly intimate atmosphere compared with some of the larger big-top shows, allowing the audience to feel closer to the performers. In fact, the cast’s ability to connect with and charm the audience is one of the standout aspects of the show.
