Palm Beach--Neil Goldberg has been producing European-style circuses for 18 years under his Cirque Dreams brand. The 53-year-old former New Yorker sends theatrical circus productions around the world from his offices, workshop and rehearsal space in a nondescript warehouse park in Pompano Beach.
His latest human variety act extravaganza, Cirque Dreams Illumination, comes to the Kravis Center for six performances from Wednesday through Sunday evening.Here’s what to expect:A TV dance show influence: “Illuminations is really about current, modern times, the many genres of entertainment that exist today on the streets. A lot of the influence came from So You Think You Can Dance?, America’s Got Talent, Dancing With the Stars, American Idol, all those kind of things.”An urban setting, with colorful, fanciful twists: “It actually takes place under a train overpass, because I sort of like the imaginary concept that a train moving by is time moving by. And cardboard boxes and trash cans and tires and park benches and street lamps, everything that’s around get used. It’s really everyday, ordinary people finding everyday, ordinary objects and doing extraordinary things with them.”Of course, there’s a clown: Martin Limberti plays a role that Goldberg dubs “The Vagabond.”
“You meet him right from the onset of the show and he’s with the trashcans, lifting the lids, the typical impression I think one would have of someone living on the streets today. But he makes you smile and he makes you laugh and he just brings a smile to people’s faces. And I think that’s important in entertainment today.”
