CircoMorph: The Primordial Circus 

When: Saturdays, 4 & 8 p.m. and Sundays, 1 & 5 p.m. Continues through March 30 2014
Price: $20-$50
A circus show put on by youth may initially conjure images of clowns and silly costumes, but CircoMorph: The Primordial Circus!, the latest production by the Circus Spire Youth Troupe, will challenge those preconceptions. The troupe — which is composed of 25 kids, ranging in age from 11 to 17, who are trained in the pre-professional circus arts — will perform acrobatics, juggling, and “high-level clowning” at the show’s premiere on Saturday at the Kinetic Arts Center (785 7th St., Oakland). The performance will also include aerial acts, such as one in which two kids hang from a single trapeze and another during which seven people will simultaneously perform on two rope ladders. With an emphasis on storytelling through physical theater (think Cirque du Soleil, not Ringling Bros.), the show focuses on the idea that one small change can alter the course of history, so one act will morph into another.
