ENVÀ by Circus Amer i Àfrica

a part of the Free Young & Fun Series

Between 550 lbs of straw and 275 lbs of human mass, two circus artists play around with movement, balance, humor and composition of space.

Amer and Àfrica explore the peculiarities of human relationships - the walls we sometimes build to protect ourselves from becoming too vulnerable with others, and what could happen if we knock those walls down, opening ourselves to communicate, share feelings, and fully connect with those around us. 

 The LPCA's Free Young & Fun Series is sponsored by Dr. David Balestrini and Lake Placid Family Dental
