Limited tickets due to social distancing.

Join the Nimble Arts company in collaboration with Circus Minimus for Circus in Place. This is a performance for all ages to bring together our community, our artists and the land that sustains us in a time of challenge and uncertainty.

The lands that we call home will be set up with multiple stages for audiences to enjoy the woods and nature alongside presentations of circus theater. Be welcomed by an Abenaki singer/songwriter sharing history of Ndakina place, marvel at an aerialist dancing in the trees alongside the story of the woods, and enjoy traditional and contemporary circus that blends the arts of aerials, acrobatics, balancing and juggling with storytelling, laughter and entertainment. Bring your own blankets for socially distanced seating and walking shoes for the woods path between stages. The event will happen rain or shine and the event is out of doors so dress accordingly.

THANK YOU to Next Stage Arts for ticketing support.
