This performance has been postponed. Those with tickets have been contacted and will have their tickets automatically transferred to the new date once it is confirmed.

The circus invades the museum! Seven zany acrobats and an electrifying musician set off a vibrant explosion of color in an otherwise monochrome exhibit. In this exhilarating feast for the senses, the wacky and endearing characters of La Galerie combine dizzying feats, astonishing discoveries and a serious dose of silly fun in an ode to creativity. With “immensely gifted performers…and spectacular routines,” (The Boston Globe) the Québec-based Machine de Cirque makes its Philadelphia debut with breathtaking stunts and live music in a show that’s at once playful, poetic and perilous.

Please note, this performance uses haze/fog.
