Family Performance: Formosa Circus Art

May, 14, 2017 |2 p.m.

In celebration of Asian Heritage Month, the National Association of Asian American Professionals - Detroit Chapter and the Friends of Asian Arts and Culture present an afternoon of acrobatics, street dance, juggling, drumming, martial arts and extreme endurance. FOCA breaks through the limitations of traditional circus forms, combining acrobatic stunts with modern dance and live theater, to create a unique stage presence for the audience.

With years of local and international touring experience, the troupe is always taking its performance somewhere new and has quickly become one of the hottest tickets at various festivals in Asia and Europe. The troupe has performed at the Festival Villeneuve en Scene, Festival Pisteurs d'Etoiles, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Tini Tinou Circus Festival and many other international festivals.

After the performance, Formosa artists will invite the audience to participate in a short circus-art workshop.
