WESTPORT, Conn. – Kids and children at heart will have a chance to see acrobats, a contortionist, jugglers, sword-swallowers and other performers as the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus comes to Westport’s Levitt Pavilion Wednesday.
Not your average circus, the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus is a hybrid of vaudeville, circus, Wild West Shows, burlesque and sideshow. Founded in 1995, the troupe has entertained audiences around the world.
Wednesday’s performance begins at 7 p.m. at the Levitt. For anyone who’s ever wondered what it’s like to be in a circus, there will also be a pre-show training camp from 5 to 7 p.m. Participants can learn the secrets behind juggling, low-wire, plate-spinning, hula-hoop, and more. There will also be demonstrations by professional circus artists.
