Inspired by the greatest of Canadian Circus performers, critically acclaimed choreographer Sharon B. Moore brings you the world premiere of The Great Farini project. 

In this harrowing duet of one-upmanship for two of Canada’s hottest dancers Moore weaves her signature jaw dropping magic. 

“Inexplicably spellbinding.”  The Craig

“You’re tempted to check your ticket stub to see if it’s golden.”   Winnipeg Sun 

“Exotic, intelligent and relentlessly kinetic”  Edmonton Sun

“Comic and original” Winnipeg Free Press

“I am inspired by those who perceive no limit to what can be created. Canadian William Hunt better known the world over as The Great Farini was such a man. His intelligence, invention and bravado thrust him atop the Victorian showman elite. Stunning audiences with physical risk, theatrical realism and super human image he changed the circus world forever. In real life Farini took great joy in one-upping his rival The Great Blondin but the two never met. In our story they do and what ensues is a duel that will curl the hair on your head and take you to the brink of exhaustion.  Join us as Farini and Blondin take to the air!”  Sharon B. Moore
