Imagination celebration: The Circus of Lost Dreams
A dream world in peril that can be saved only by curiosity and imagination is the subject of the inaugural project of CircAspire, Wise Fool New Mexico’s new preprofessional program for students who are ready to move on from children’s and cabaret-style shows to fully realized circus productions. The Circus of Lost
Dreams comes to the James A. Little Theater (1060 Cerrillos Road) at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 1, and at 2 and 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 2. The cast features aspiring circus artists age seven to sixty-seven. The music includes recorded compositions as well as instruments played live by performers as they balance on trapezes and aerial hoops. Tickets, $15 (with discounts available), can be purchased at www.brownpapertickets.com. — J.L.
