The Big Top in the Little Easy

Donation protected

Host of Sparrows is proud to announce our first feature-length circus show: The Big Top in the Little Easy: Animals, Clowns, and Acrobats!

The Big Top in the Little Easy tells the story of how a lonely soul finds a place in the world through the magic of circus. The show features performances by the full Host of Sparrows Aerial Circus Company, including living statues, clowns, stilt-walking, static trapeze, lyra (aerial hoop), aerial silks, partner acrobatics, modern dance, and contortion. (Please note that Host of Sparrows does not support the use of animals in the circus; all our animals are human-animals!)

The Big Top in the Little Easy is family-friendly and fun for ladies, gentlemen, boys, girls, and children of all ages from 0-100. Proceeds from the show will go to keep Host of Sparrows flying and to support our hosts, Dogtown Dance Theatre (a non-profit community arts center).

Host of Sparrows is a home-grown, RVA-local company of artists, and we need your help! We are working with other RVA artists to build our props, set pieces, and costumes; and to design custom makeup, costumes, and music for the show. We firmly believe that art has deep value, so we are asking you to help us pay our artist collaborators and to help to fund the future of circus arts in RVA.

Host of Sparrows will present The Big Top in the Little Easy at Dogtown Dance Theatre in Manchester October 14 at 7.30pm, 15 at 2pm and 7.30pm, 21 at 7.30pm, & 22 at 2pm and 7.30pm, 2016.
