Beats 'n Boats
In Support of Halifax Circus Circle: An Outreach Program for Youth in Difficulty
Fri, Mar 30 at 8pm
- This event is 19+
Beats ‘n Boats will present Kamphyre’s Offshore Cabaret, featuring circus performers from Scout Camp and Halifax Circus twirling to the beats of local electronic music producers Cloverdale, flying from the aerial rigging, luring the audience into their watery world with wild spinning dives through fluttering fabrics, and stunning them with fantastical flips and flexibility. The evening will open up with a performance by local songwriting duo Aloysius. Wasko AV will be “on deck” projecting his unique digital art onto the collection of antique boats, their sails and the natural features of the museums architecture, providing surreal yet gorgeous visual stimulation to the evening’s aquatic atmosphere.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Halifax Circus Circle. This program assists troubled youth to better their lives through the discipline and self-confidence that come with developing and mastering circus skills such as juggling, unicycling and balance work, aerials, acrobatics and more. The teachers share their joy of performing and help youth learn in a safe and supportive environment.
The bar will exclusively feature locally brewed beer by Good Robot and locally distilled spirits by Compass Distillery. And for all of the wanna-be mermaids out there, Master Redken hair stylists Gregory Kennedy and Barrett Wombaldt from Vitality Medi Spa will be providing complimentary hair braiding throughout the evening.
