WSCC presents Le Cirque Esprit

MANISTEE – The West Shore Community College Performing Arts Series kicks off its 2021-2022 season with two performances by Le Cirque Esprit, “Spirit of the Machine” on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, at 7:30 p.m. at The Ramsdell Regional Center for the Arts, 101 Maple St.

Le Cirque Esprit has established a unique identity in American circus by framing the pioneering contemporary music of Cordis under a spectacular tapestry of lights, acrobatics and aerial movement.

This new show is based on the Greek mythological tale of Talos: “the first machine.” The show was inspired by Cordis’ epic multi-movement suite, The Only, which features the group performing with several mechanical movements including a 1902 Victor Talking Machine, a large custom-made music box, a pocket watch, and more. The show also features breathtaking acrobatics and aerial acts paired with classic steampunk-era circus artistry such as juggling and wheel acts.
