Ever wanted to run away with the circus? Take that chance when the edgy performance group Spokane Aerial Performance Arts hosts its first circus festival, which includes instructional workshops for all you would-be aerial silk performers and jugglers. The performance school is also hosting acclaimed aerialist Krin Haglund, who has performed on stages around the world and is the first female to perform on the Cyr wheel. The apparatus is basically a giant metal hoop a performer stands inside and manipulates to do acrobatic feats. Haglund is teaching several workshops on the wheel, but definitely don’t miss her performance alongside local aerialists at the festival finale.
