Acrobatica Infiniti - the Circus Entertainment Taken to the Nerd Level
Everyone knows about Cirque du Soleil, and most of us wouldn’t pass up a chance to see them. Their breathtaking productions are nothing short of miraculous and there’s probably no company in the world that can match them.
But pardon me if I say that there just might be one company I would pay to see more: Acrobatica Infiniti.
I will confess that I haven’t seen any of their shows, but the fact that they merge cosplay and circus is more than enough to up my curiosity level more than a notch.
Also known as Nerd Circus, Acrobatica Infiniti features “an all-star cast of performance artists, including contortionists, trapeze artists, acrobats, jugglers and more. From Comic Conventions to small theaters, over the last year, Acrobatica Infiniti has performed in front of packed audiences and showcased extraordinary abilities.”
Think of your favorite superheroes and characters from your fandom(s) doing all sorts of things to their body (in a good and mesmerizing way) with you holding your breath just like that first time Superman dove from the sky to catch Lois Lane successfully without breaking her in half.
Nerd + superhero + fandom + circus = I want to watch.
Oh, and if you’re going to Gen Con – that’s today till the 7th! – make sure you catch them. They have new additions like Soot Sprite juggling Totoro, an Elastigirl Contortionist, and a Kaylee Parasol Juggler.
Maybe they’ll have a belly dancing Wookie or something like that in the future, who knows?
Man, oh, man. I so wish I could go!
