The UniverSoul Circus is coming to Chicago this week, starting its visit on Wednesday, September 18th in Washington Park before moving to Union Park October 11-20. The UniverSoul Circus began in 1994 and has become one of the largest circuses in the U.S.A. By incorporating hip-hop and pop music and cross-cultural acts, the UniverSoul Circus changes up circus traditions. The UniverSoul Circus has a number of interesting acts including:
- Caribbean dancers - Decked out head to toe in colorful, festive costume, dancers from the the islands of Trinidad and Tobago perform stimulating, show-stopping routines.
- Irina Markova's comedy dogs - The talented dogs take the show to new heights with jumps, leaps and tumbles through hoops.
- Twisting and contorting in unimaginable ways, the unbelievable
Ethiopian performers are known to stun audiences.
- Teeterboard acrobatics - One or more acrobats jump from one end to launch a flyer from the other, propelling into the air for a must-see display
If you would like tickets for the circus, they run $16-$35 and you can order them through Ticketmaster. Children under 1 are free.
