Stardrop Circus Vs. Gravity

Audience members have the opportunity to see high-flying acrobats perform aerial tricks with silks during this circus performance. Members of Stardrop fight with gravity to showcase the grace and strength of the human body. This performance must take place in a gymnasium because the equipment used is more than 20 feet high. Ideal to pair with the Big Top Physics workshop.

A Spider Named Apollo

Through the dramatic performing arts, the audience is led on a musical adventure, the journey of a spider name Apollo. In connection to literature written and illustrated by Apollo’s Fire, participants explore the adventures of artists at a performance of Mozart’s famous opera The Magic Flute. The book comes to life with professional musicians, singers, actors, and dancers. Through interactive aspects, participants engage alongside the performers to help lead Apollo the Spider on his musical journey through the opera.

Big Top Physics

Big Top Physics is a workshop that will engage students in exploring the physics of performing extraordinary physical feats.  Students will learn about the types of forces affecting motion, including gravitational force, tension force, frictional force, applied force, inertia, and center of mass.  These concepts will be taught by a combination of performance/demonstration and active participation.
