Cirque du sol­stice: Wise Fool New Mex­ico

Pasatiempo - - Acts Random -

The night of win­ter sol­stice is the long­est and dark­est of the year — and it is of­ten cel­e­brated with spir­i­tual and mys­ti­cal rit­ual and much feast­ing and rev­elry. In honor of the sol­stice, Wise Fool New Mex­ico presents Dark Is the Night Cir­cus at 7 p. m. on Satur­day, Dec. 20, at Sky­light ( 139 W. San Francisco St., 505-982-0775). The cabaret­style event fea­tures aerial and ground ac­ro­bat­ics, jug­gling, stilt-walk­ing, and Balkan mu­sic by the group Rumelia. Amy Christian, the artis­tic di­rec­tor of Wise Fool — the or­ga­ni­za­tion that pro­duces the an­nual Cir­cus Lu­mi­nous — said that Dark Is the Night Cir­cus is not only a sea­sonal cel­e­bra­tion but a pi­lot per­for­mance to test lo­cal in­ter­est in a monthly cir­cus cabaret at Sky­light. Santa Feans who would ap­pre­ci­ate this re­cur­ring event are en­cour­aged to make their in­ter­est known by at­tend­ing on Dec. 20. Ad­mis­sion is $15 to $25, and all ages are wel­come. Tick­ets are avail­able at www.hold­myt­icket. com. Apollo Gar­cia pic­tured. — J.L.
