Cirque Banquiste - Lone Star Circus

Cirque Banquiste Performs New Years Eve Weekend

(See discount code for tickets below!)

It’s almost time for Lone Star Circus’ annual circus extravaganza, Cirque Banquisté! We went last year and it was a wonderful experience!

When I interviewed Fanny Kerwich, founder and Creative Director of Lone Star Circus, she explained to me that renowned circus artists from around the world come to Dallas just to perform in Cirque Banquisté, and they have just a few days to put this amazing show together each year. The show features acrobats, aerialists, hand balancers, jugglers, clowns and contortionists, just to name a few, who perform together to create a fabulous show just for DFW!

This year’s Acts include:

  • From Chile, the joyous and colorful canine antics of The Cartoon Poodles;
  • From Cuba, the awe-inspiring and elegant hand balancing of Ricardo Sosa;
  • From Russia, the extraordinary and mesmerizing award-winning juggling of Gena Cristiani;
  • From Atlanta, Matt Richardson’s exciting and inventive spins on the ground and in the air.
  • From Argentina, the amazing and spectacular acrobatics of The Laurino Brothers.
  • From Dallas, the energizing and beautiful Jesse Patterson and her twirling hula hoops;
  • From Russia, the mind-boggling and subtle rolla-rolla equilibriums of Kirill Rebkovets;
  • From Chicago, the striking and balletic aerial choreography of the graceful Simone Marina Lazar;
  • From Pittsburgh, the zany comedy of the international ambassador of Giggleland, Mr. Gordoon;
  • And from Dallas, all-time favorite queen and king of laughter, Slappy and Monday!
