Cirque Italia Comes To Dalton Thursday Through Sunday

Wednesday, April 17, 2019

Cirque Italia, the first traveling Italian Water Circus with a 35,000-gallon water stage and artists from all over the world, will be performing in Dalton Thursday through Sunday at the North Georgia AG Fairgrounds. 

Performances will be Thursday and Friday at 7:30 p.m., Saturday at 1:30, 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 4:30 p.m.  The fairgrounds are at 500 Legion Dr. 

Review for Cirque Italia: 

This is an innovative and unique production, (the only one of its kind in the country), and officials will be premiering their newest show "Aqua" in Dalton. 

Cirque Italia is constantly searching for new ways to provide once in a lifetime experiences to the American audience, which lead to the introduction of its second unit, the Gold Unit. Its aim is to produce a luxurious atmosphere where water, technology, and preforming arts are mixed to create a one-of-a-kind show. 

Cirque Italia focuses on keeping the traditional ‘big top circus feel’ under the tent, so the children of today can still enjoy the same experience their parents might have experienced years ago.  

There is an ultra-modern water curtain that controls every droplet of water meticulously. Words and patterns can be seen as the water falls to the ‘lagoon’ below synchronized with a creative display of talent.

There will be contortionists, mermaids, a laser man, and the wheel of death  The show is animal free.
