Singapore's first homegrown acrobatic circus, Circus of Altrades, will be launching their debut digital circus show in time for the festive season on 20 December.
The production, titled, "Circus of Altrades: Christmas Edition'', stars an all-Singaporean cast of artistes showcasing an array of circus disciplines.
Perfect for all ages, viewers can expect to be awed by gravity-defying stunts, acrobatic feats, fire breathing, and more in this festive cinematic piece.
Choreographed and directed by the founders of Circus of Altrades, Beverly Wan and Koh Jia Sheng, this performance builds on the training they received at the acclaimed Australian circus company, Gravity & Other Myths.
The cast features local performers well-established in their areas of expertise, comprising national athletes, gymnasts, cheerleaders, contemporary dancers, and more.
For their first foray into the commercial space, Circus of Altrades aims for their debut show to signify the future for the circus arts in Singapore.
"Aside from spreading the love of circus to more people, we are hoping that this production can show local artistes that a sustainable and fulfilling career in the arts is possible. This show is just the beginning for us." said Koh Jia Sheng, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Altrades.
The production will be screened at 8PM and 9:30PM at The Projector from 21 to 23 December, with a runtime of 45 minutes.
Audiences at The Projector screening will also enjoy a post-show Q&A session with the two founders of the Circus of Altrades.
Adhering to the prevailing social gathering group size limits, the screenings are open to fully-vaccinated audiences only.
Viewers can also enjoy the show in the comforts of their home by purchasing a link to watch the production online at their own convenience from 20 to 31 December.
Tickets for The Projector screening are priced at $25, while the online viewing link can be purchased for $20 whilst stock lasts.
