Circus Arts brings holiday fun and Nepal relief
THE fun of the circus will combine with serious humanitarian fundraising for Nepal when Circus Arts Byron Bay presents The Mysterious Case of the Disappearing Circus in the first week of the coming school holidays.
Performed by professional circus artist and teacher Jacqui Levy, previously of Circus Oz, the show will be an action packed 45 minutes of family entertainment featuring high level bounce juggling, rolla bolla and magic, with plenty of laughs and audience interaction.
A portion of the ticket sales will go towards assisting victims of the recent Gorkha Earthquake in Nepal, which killed more than 8000 people and injured more than 18000.
"Through the proceeds of ticket sales, we will be donating to the Seva Foundation's emergency relief fund, said Kate Priddle of Circus Arts.
"Recent reports indicate that recovering from a disaster of this magnitude will not be a short-term process.
"The Seva Foundation is a respected organization that has had a long term, on the ground, presence in Nepal for 37 years.
"We are hoping that the local community will show their support for this great cause in exchange for a highly entertaining show."
The Mysterious Case of the Disappearing Circus is on from 12noon- 12.35pm from Monday June 29 until Friday July 3.
Tickets are $10 on the door at Circus Arts Byron Bay, 17 Centennial Circuit, Arts & Industry Estate, Byron Bay
