Don't Try This At Home
Saturday 12:45- 2:15
Sunday 2:00- 3:30
An extraordinary circus doubleheader showcasing the artistic, experimental, and entertaining!
Distillations by Luther Bangert is a solo contemporary juggling show that takes the audience on a multimedia and multidimensional journey through the anatomy of a moment, investigating causality, and emerging into the ground state of the juggling universe. By highlighting segments within the juggling process that are often only a means to an end - the suspense of a peaked throw, an object at rest, a dropped object, and the moving human body above, below, and through it all, we are invited to explore the realms between inner and outer, and wonder at the transformations inherent there.
*While this show is appropriate for all ages, it does feature some loud music and surreal imagery that could be overwhelming for some children.
Dinder Brother's Circus is proud to present the "DONT TRY THIS AT HOME SHOW!!!" Seen across the midwest since 2015 this blend of circus, magic, and danger is sure to entertain anyone ages 4 and up! With mystifying aerials, feats of death, and astounding illusions everyone will find something they enjoy.
Luther Bangert was born and raised in the farmlands of the USA in a small town near the banks of the Mississippi river. Always taken with the unusual and enchanted, he developed a fascination with juggling at the age of 19. Luther has performed with the Great Bombay Circus in India, has a degree in philosophy, holds a Guinness World Record for “Most Things Juggled Whilst Sword Swallowing”, and has performed in twenty countries across four continents in the last nine years. Most recently he has premiered his contemporary show ‘Distillations’ and is based in Philadelphia and the East Coast, performing and teaching juggling at the Circadium School of Contemporary Circus.
