From the venue:
AKmē Instant Circus; the performance company of Akrosphere Aerial & Circus Arts returns to Aurora Children’s Playhouse with more fun and high flying thrills. This Cirque will amaze and amuse children of all ages and the adults who brought them.
AKmē Instant Circus, the performing company of Akrosphere Aerial & Circus Arts, was formed in January of 2017. With attention to artistry and using circus as a form of communication, AKmē coaches and directors strive to create the perfect atmosphere to turn athletes into artists. Our company members, ranging in age from 7-19, perform artistic works with deeper meanings. Moreover, each company member, regardless of their age, choreographs their own works. Our company directors act as artistic mentors, explicitly asking questions to help the performer dig deeper and guiding choices to help the performer say what they are trying to express. As a result, “out of the mouths of babes” comes thought-provoking artistic works, purely created with the performer’s voice.
