The Ghostly Circus: Fire and Aerial Theater
August 10 - August 11
This summer 7textures will return to Laurel Hill for a fifth year of enchanting fire and aerial performances with the Ghostly Circus. In this theatrical presentation amid the tombs, artists will build their stage evoking and encompassing the spirit of Laurel Hill while drawing upon themes from Dante Alighieri’s epic poem, The Inferno. This unique, other-worldly show features contemporary circus arts with live music and a Dance-with-the-Dead After-Party. Bring your own blankets or beach chairs and enjoy an evening under the stars. Food vendors will be onsite, along with a bar sponsored by Magic Hat Brewing Company. Don’t forget to bring cash!
