LAF. LEMON AND HONEY. PERFORMANCE OF THE RĪGA CIRCUS
The Rīga Circus will bring joy to families at the Liepāja Art Forum!
The performance Lemon and Honey, produced by the Rīga Circus, is a touching and playful story of friendship, joy, sadness, and everyday situations, showing that joy and play can always be found among the solemnity of life.
When a boy is in a good and friendly mood, a girl might not be. And vice versa! There are, however, moments when an understanding is possible, just like a somersault, singing on top of each other’s shoulders, and the skill of catching a falling flower pot. Circus means merriment and wonder, and why could that not be applied to all of life and relationships!
This amusing and playful story for young audiences will be danced and sung by two passionate aerial acrobats, Grete Gross from Estonia and Juha-Matti Eskelinen from Finland.
Participants will be able to attend 3 different workshops:
juggling station (balls)
juggling station (scarves and Chinese plate spinning)
balance station (stilts and balance pedals, bucket stilts for younger children)
Intended audience: children aged 4 to 13
Producer of natural soft drinks Gardu Muti will meet attendees before the performance with delicious drinks and exciting surprises.
