MOTH Poetic Circus is taking a trip to Wonderland

54

Circuses are what’s in right now. Political circuses, media circuses, and now, actual circuses. But the modern circuses aren’t like your grandparents’ circus. These are postmodern, Beat Generation-esque circuses where art and entertainment collide. MOTH Poetic Circus is one such circus and their interpretation of Alice in Wonderland will undoubtedly offer enough of the surreal to make David Lynch blush. Featuring jugglers, aerialists, acrobats and contortionists of world-renown, as well as an original score, this will give you a much different look at Lewis Carroll’s work than the latest cinema adaptations.

7:30 P.M., March 29. Tickets start at $35. Ellie Caulkins Opera House, 1385 Curtis St, Denver.. tinyurl.com/yyqg5w6b
