Circophony presents

A new touring circus performance about communication, acceptance and working through differences.
Performances will be 
Friday, April 28 at 7 pm, and Saturday, April 29, 2 pm and 7 pm 
at Oddfellows Playhouse, 
128 Washington Street in Middletown. 
Circus Indivisible is available for bookings at schools, clubs and events throughout May and June. The 45 minute show features 14 seasoned teen performers who juggle, stilt, dance, hoop, unicycle, balance on ladders, and flip through the air. The Traveling Company, selected by audition, develops an original circus performance each winter for a Spring tour. Circus Indivisible combines circus, dance, acrobatics and comedy to build connections across the communication gaps in our contemporary culture. The Company's Roman Ladders become walls that separate people, bridges that bring them together, and, ultimately, ladders that take them higher.
Don't miss this exciting celebration of young energy, strength and talent. 
Circophony is a collaboration between the two Middletown-based non-profit theater companies, ARTFARM and Oddfellows Playhouse. Circophony offers year-round circus training and performance opportunities to young people ages 12 to 19
Circus Indivisible is an impressive, inspiring and affordable Spring assembly program! 
Contact info@art-farm for info about booking the Company. Limited dates are available during May and June.
Tickets for the April 28 & 29 performances are available through oddfellows.org.
