For its last performance of the season, CirqueLouis is teaming up with the Squallis Puppeteers to present “East of the Sun” at the Iroquois Amphitheater for two performances only, June 9-10.

The show will take the audience on a journey to the Arctic North, as the Polar Bear Prince and his bride travel beyond the ice and snow into another dimension — a world populated by acrobats, jugglers, dancers and aerialists, of course.

CirqueLouis is a nonprofit circus arts performance group dedicated to bringing the circus arts to Louisville and also promoting physical, mental and emotional well-being.

“The circus is so much more than entertainment, it’s a living, breathing, moving dynamic performance art form,” said CirqueLouis co-founder Christine Moondancer in a promo video. She explained the group is a spinoff of Turner’s Circus.

“CirqueLouis was our way to take the circus out of the gym and out into the community,” she added.

Advance tickets to “East of the Sun” are $20 and can be purchased online. Doors open each night at 6:30 p.m., and the show begins at 7:30.
