For adults, families, and youth alike, SPACE is kicking off February’s school recess with a reprisal performance of Janoah’s acclaimed “meSSeS” with special pricing for youth.

Part performance, part workshop, YOU learn to juggle while watching this (optionally interactive) all-ages experience. Precarious unicycling, jaw-dropping juggling, mesmerizing motions … Janoah the Jester tosses together a tale of learning & labor, emerging ecstatically from a haphazard pile of props.

And (of course!) what circus would be complete without popcorn & banana peels?

“meSSeS” is an evening-length family-friendly solo circus-theatre-dance performance, winner of “Spirit of the Fringe” at the 2022 Elgin Fringe Festival.
