The Sunday event will be a sensory-friendly performance - the first Kentucky Center Presents show to do so. This type of performance is designed to create a welcoming environment for individuals with autism spectrum disorder and individuals with sensory sensitivities, with accommodations like dimmed theatre lights, extra space and freedom to vocalize and switch seats. Provided with support from The Gheens Foundation, this performance will be prefaced by a short pre-event tactile tour where people can interact with performers and handle some of the props.
Founded in May 2015, CirqueLouis is a nonprofit dedicated to enhanced circus arts training and bringing forth contemporary circus theatre.
Gravity reigns over the circus artists. Every action- a rise and fall. The circus artists play their role for the public, a challenge to break through limitations and find brief flight. The public reacts to them as they respond to gravity's harsh consequences. It pushes back against every action at every moment, a system ruled only by making the right choice at the right time.
