Goggles, gears, and gadgets set the stage for Circus Vargas’ 2017’s retro-futuristic production, Steam Cirque! Join them on a journey of fantastic proportions where children of all ages will marvel at the wacky and wonderful cast of characters that come alive in this exciting steampunk, science- fiction fantasy inspired circus odyssey!
An eccentric group of adventure seekers stumble upon a traveling circus in an imaginary Victorian city, far, far-away. SteamCirque’s peculiar protagonist, part magician-
part inventor, attempts to industrialize the circus by incorporating his steam powered mechanical contraptions into the ordinary, typical circus rigging, filling the big top with new, imaginative acrobatic apparatus for the artists to perform their acts. It becomes a test of wills, the steampunkers versus the circus folk, who will win? Audiences will have to come and see to find out!!
“SteamCirque is inspired by adventure, colored by imagination and brought to life by the amazing cast of Circus Vargas!” – Rolanda Kaiser
Here’s a peek at the show from Circus Vargas’ YouTube channel:
Husband and wife team Nelson and Katya Quiroga’s inspiration for this year’s production
came to them over a casual dinner with friends. While reminiscing of traveling, their many
adventures and how fast time has passed, Nelson remarked suddenly that he’d felt as if
he’d been “Around the World in 80 days!” referring to a novel from French author Jules
Verne’s collection, Voyages Extraordinaire. That comment and the subsequent
conversation that followed morphed into hours of story-telling. “It’s been quite the
journey, says Katya. Sometimes we don’t even believe it ourselves.”
SteamCirque is inspired by adventure, colored by imagination and brought to life by
