Community circus to perform three shows in Courtenay

7 Story Circus performing at the Lewis Centre

A world of delightful ingenuity comes alive in 7 Story Circus’s newest production, BUILD. This full-length piece showcases the talents of up to 90 students over three performances on June 9, 13 and 14. The show features aerialists, acrobats, architecture, balancing, & more!

7 Story Circus is an all-ages, contemporary circus based in the Comox Valley, led by Kaya Kehl, a circus performer, teacher, and director with over a decade of experience. While the troupe performs at community events throughout the year, the June show is the only chance to catch their full-length performance in its entirety.

This year’s show, BUILD, was inspired by a series of creative exercises that tasked the troupe with answering: “How do we move through our environment? If that environment changes, how does that change us and our relationship with each other?”

The conclusion; the things we build, end up building us. In a refreshingly, literal exploration, each performer invites the audience to witness their unique take on this theme as they construct their own pathways in the air, on the ground, and through space.

“We are very excited to share our production with the Comox Valley,” said Kehl. “Each year we strive to create a performance that is unique and ignites the hearts and imaginations of our audience; we feel that this year’s performance is no exception.”

Show times are as follows and all take place at Courtenay Recreation’s Lewis Centre, 489 Old Island Highway:

Sunday June 9, Doors at 1 p.m. Show at 1:30 (includes an opening act by Community Circus 1 kids).

Thursday June 13 and Friday June 14, Doors at 7 p.m. Show at 7:30 p.m. (includes an opening act by Aerial Arts Students).

Admission at the door: $20/person, $10 Kids (12 & under), or $50 Family Pass (maximum 2 adults/family).
