‘Cirque Alcatraz’ Brings Aerials, Acrobatics To Crossroads Center This Week | Local news

WATERLOO – Aerial acts, stunts, displays of human strength and balance, comedy and illusions wrapped in a tale of murder and incarceration are part of “Cirque Alcatraz,” which opens Thursday at Crossroads Center.

“Cirque Alcrataz” features aerial acrobatics, stunts and a story of murder and incarceration. The show opens Thursday in Waterloo.


The show, performed by Cirque Italia, combines traditional circus acts with new and unexpected media. It will be performed under the orange striped marquee set up in the parking lot at Sears.

Performances are Thursday and Friday at 7.30 pm, Saturday at 6.30 pm and 9.30 pm and Sunday at 5.30 pm and 8.30 pm.

“Cirque Alcatraz” is the story of two best friends accused of murder and forced to navigate the world’s most dangerous prison, populated by some of the world’s most dangerous — and talented — inmates and guards. The story is combined with aerial and acrobatic art, cabaret dancing, Broadway-style musical performances and comedy in an immersive experience.

“Cirque Alcatraz” is the latest production from Cirque Entertainment, the company that created the water circuses of Cirque Italia and the dark side of the circus world with Paranormal Cirque.
