KAOS 89.3 FM Olympia Community Radio and Olympia Film Society bring you PURE CIRKUS on Super Saturday, June 14, 2008

Published: June 10, 2008 10:15 AM

Event Date: June 14, 2008 8:00 PM

On June 14, 2008, Super Saturday, Washington State’s largest one-day festival, celebrates 30 years at The Evergreen State College.  Live performances are one of the highlights of Super Saturday, and this year KAOS is taking that idea to downtown Olympia, in cooperation with the Olympia Film Society

At 8:00pm, KAOS and OFS present Seattle’s PURE Cirkus at the historic Capitol Theater in a night of daring delight; from the audacious to the exquisite. 

Tickets are $15 general admission, $10 for KAOS/OFS members, kids under 12 just $5.

PURE Cirkus is a performance art and event production company that spans multiple genres and themes within the live entertainment and circus field.  Their productions focus on Corporeal storytelling and Variety acts merging elements of street performance, Cirque Noir or "Dark Cirkus", live theater, circus acts, dance, burlesque, tribal art and live music, with more modern forms of performance such as grinder performance and fire manipulation.

Featuring stunning costumes, height-defying stilt walkers and aerialists, illusionists, comical clowns, jaw dropping acts of demented bravery by the geeks, freaks and acrobats, the clash of both the macabre and mystical side of the three ring circus is brought to life through the human body as PURE Cirkus.

Also performing, the Penny Dreadfuls, formerly known as Femme de Fabrique; and the music of Vince Brown and his Fish Tale Hoppin’ Barley Feetwarmers!  All freaks, geeks, and families welcome!  This fun time event is a fundraiser for the Olympia Film Society and KAOS-fm Olympia Community Radio!  It’s an all-ages show with a 21+ beer garden in the upstairs mezzanine.
