COMMON CIRCUS: Roslindale Square (a walking tour)

By Luminarium Dance Company (other events)

Sunday, August 6 2023 4:00 PM 6:00 PM EDT

Join us all throughout Roslindale Square for a walking tour of Luminarium Dance's current work: COMMON CIRCUS!

COMMON CIRCUS is a three-ring exploration of the mundane. From doing the laundry to existential dread, workplace "norms" to putting a toddler to bed, join us as we visit some familiar sites while making great spectacle out of our day-to-day. From co-working space to coffee shop, dumpster to busy sidewalk, join us as we take this FUN performance to the streets and businesses of Roslindale Square. 

This roving performance utilizes dance, theatre, comedy, spoken word, and sport as the performers guide audience members from site to site. 

Access needs? The route is clear for folks using mobility devices or strollers, and we pace the show with consideration for varied walking speeds. Please email us with access questions—[email protected].
