HarbourKIDS: Circus


May 20, 2017 to May 22, 2017


Harbourfront Centre’s annual HarbourKIDS: Circus festival returns and is sure to inspire our youngest guests to fly. For the second year in a row, we’ve teamed up with Femmes de Feu’s Holly Treddenick and Adam Lazarus as curators, to help fill our site and stages with contemporary circus acts that will have you gasping in awe, doubling over with laughter and perhaps even joining in!

HarbourKIDS: Circus Highlights:

Voyages in Circus Show
May 20 – 22, 2017
Step right up! This steampunk extravaganza has something for the whole family. Witness acrobats on a flying bicycle, marvel at jugglers and take in some vaudeville comedy. This show of contemporary circus works by local artists will also feature a different out-of-town performer from Circus Sessions each day.

Mr. Mess
May 20 – 22, 2017
Mr. Mess wants to do his show but nothing’s going to plan. Expect lots of uppity umbrellas, bursting balloons and strange suitcases in this charming performance.

The Circus of Industrious Fleas
May 20 – 22, 2017
Buster Canfield, the world’s greatest flea circus impresario, returns to Toronto to astound and amaze audiences of all ages with his menagerie of mite sized mini-marvels! The greatest trained fleas ever to hop the Earth will perform for you death defying acts of pulchritude and prowess for your amusement and edification!

May 20 – 22, 2017
Come fly with us! An impressive group of designers have created an interactive installation. Lay in a rigged hammock and hover above the clouds amidst light and sound while tracing your journey beneath you.

Becoming the Human Cannonball Art Station
May 20 – 22, 2017
Led by Toronto visual artist, Aleks Bartosik, you are invited to create your very own super Human Cannonball costume to wear in case you shoot off to the sky! Through art-making using recycled materials, this event creates a conversation between the artist, child, and parent as we explore boundaries between the real and the imaginary.
