Minnesota Fringe Festival 2020: "A Circus Show"

Location: Digital Hub (available anytime)

Length: 25 minutes

Title: A Circus Show

By: WeFlip Entertainment

Summary: Two "brothers" perform amazing feats of acrobatics.

Highlights: Friends, this show is truly amazing, in a mouth-dropping did-they-really-just-do-that kind of way. Originally recorded at Valleyfair (remember amusement parks?) on a stage decked out like a circus tent, these two "brothers" perform a fun, silly, and incredibly difficult routine that requires the kind of core strength I only wish I had. With a sort of brotherly rivalry tone, they push, trick, and tease each other. But no talking; the only sound is recorded music, so the rivalry is played out in an exaggerated pantomime style. Handstands on top of stacked chairs, incredible dual poses like the one in the photo, and high jumping, twisting, and flipping on a teeter-totter, are just a few of the things you'll see. Highly recommended for something quick, different, and truly impressive.
