Circus Bardo

A crazy circus hosted by master clown, comedian and acrobat, Lucius “Lightning Bolt” Bardo.

Featuring the miraculous Tube of Transformation, delightful Dancing Capes, the jazzy Juggling Cups, Kids Acrobatics and the world-famous Little Anna (Stunt Baby).

The Trap

Technology and nature battle with an unlucky fool caught in the middle.  Sublime slapstick and poetic pitfalls, mad music, peculiar props and hilarious physical comedy.
