You'll marvel as puppets made of trash perform death-defying acts and suspenseful feats in Urbano's Circus. Inspired by artist Alexander Calder's famed sculpture Circus, experienced puppeteers take to the stage to bring characters including Ivan the Iron-Clad Stomach, Clyde the Fearless Clown and Boris the Elastic Acrobat to life. Richard Grunn, the lead puppeteer in this production, has performed at venues all over the U.K. and Ireland, including the prestigious Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Learn More
