Circus Flora will channel the imagination of groundbreaking filmmaker Georges Méliès for it's upcoming production, "A Trip to the Moon."
Inspired by the 1902 Méliès' film by the same name, "A Trip to the Moon" opens May 30 and features Johnny Peers & the Muttville Comix, equestrian Lisa Dufresne, Carlos Svenson and his Magical Flying Goats, Yo-Yo the Narrator, the St. Louis Arches, the Flying Pages, the Flying Wallendas and others.
"I see a kindred spirit in Méliès," said David Balding, Circus Flora's artistic director and producer. "He knew how to transport his audience and suspend their belief of what was possible. And yet over time, our world has become so dominated by what we see on screens that our immediate response is disbelief. I like to think that we are channeling Méliès’ aesthetic to show our audience what is possible in very real acts of physical daring."
