This holiday season, come share this experience with Cirque Roots as we celebrate the Winter Solstice passage of the sun as it dips to its lowest point in our Sonoran Desert sky, the shortest day and longest night. Witness clever choreography with 25 performers offering fire dancing, acrobatics, aerial, and stilt dance. This unique time of year has become important on many levels, both culturally and physically.
This community-style event will be taking place during sunset overlooking the beautiful Catalina mountains. Please bring your own chairs and blankets. Come early to get a great seat, purchase a hot beverage, and take in the winter spirit!
Cirque Roots Productions & Studio is a grassroots artist collective that was founded in 2011 with a vision to inspire the community to create and play through movement and dance. Based in an 1910’s adobe warehouse in downtown Tucson located near Dunbar Springs and Barrio Anita, Cirque Roots created a space for the community to engage in circus inspired arts and to co- create in the community through conscious events and workshops. The Cirque Roots performance crew has been performing collectively over the past six years, created 5 original productions, and was nominated for a 2015 Lumies Award: Best Arts Organization.
