KDKA - Pittsburgh Today Live!

Mirette's Circus

Join Zany Umbrella Circus and Germany's Pivoting Theatre & Oko Sokolo for the World Premier of Mirette's Circus at the Kelly-Strayhorn Theater. Based on the award winning children's picture book Mirette on the Highwire written and illustrated by Emily Arnold McCully, Mirette's Circus takes audiences back to Paris at the turn of the Cenutry where we find Madame's inn full of travelling artists and young Mirette finding her footing in this wobbly world. When the Great Bellini arrives in turmoil, they juggle frienship, fear, and the courage to realize their dreams. This exciting international collaboration features physical theater, circus arts, dance, original music composition, mask work and more!

Mirette's Circus is commissioned by SummerStage Kids (NYC) with generous residency support from the Kelly Strayhorn Theater.

Thursday July 7th - 11am & 7pm
