You can almost smell the fresh-cut pine logs and the sweat of lumberjacks as you watch acrobats and dancers jiving to a traditional folk soundtrack. Kirkland Performance Center (KPC) is excited to present a cirque performance unlike any other as Cirque Alfonse performs TIMBER! From axe juggling, to dancing and singing lumberjacks, this brand new show will delight audiences of all ages. There are four opportunities to see TIMBER! with performances on Friday, April 22th at 8:00pm, Saturday, April 23rd at 3:00pm and 8:00pm, and Sunday, April 24th at 3:00pm.
Hailing from Quebec, Canada, the young circus company, Cirque Alfonse has revolutionized the idea of contemporary circus. Demonstrating a one of a kind mixture of astonishing acrobatics, original music, and jaw-dropping spectacles, Cirque Alfonse delivers the feel and aroma of Quebec, all while branching out in unique creations that no other circus has dared to explore. This masterfully brilliant cast of acrobats, musicians, and dancers deliver a performance so dynamic; you may not even believe what you are seeing.
Cirque Alfonse’s new show TIMBER! infuses the beauty of traditional folk music, with the pleasant scent of Quebec’s illustrious pine. TIMBER! is a skillful display of energy and inspiration, derived from the circus’s very own hometown. The talented acrobats and musicians create a colorful, energetic scene where we can witness epic feats of agility and strength, inspired by the exploits of the first North-American lumberjacks, loggers and farmers. Digging deep into the roots from where they emerged, the props, costumes, and a very unusual acrobatic apparatus, all derived from the farm-land from which the troupe originated. This presentation not only emits an aroma of authenticity, but exhibits the legendary agility of North America’s first loggers, lumberjacks, and farmers. Join KPC for an epic display of incredible entertainment, in an atmosphere that is hyper festive. TIMBER! is the perfect performance for the whole family, and with two matinees children of all ages can enjoy this one of a kind show.
