Circus Bella Opening | SF’s Yerba Buena Gardens Festival 2022 (May 7 – October 29)

Circus Bella is an open air, one-ring circus featuring amazing circus artists on static trapeze, rope walking, juggling, contortion, unicycle, clowning, acrobatics, and more set to an original score performed by live musicians.

Come see the premier of Here We Go!, a completely new 60-minute, one-ring circus showcasing professional acts set to an original score by composer Rob Reich, performed live by the awesome Bella All Stars.

Created and directed by Abigail Munn and David Hunt, Circus Bella features aerial acrobatics, madcap clowning, balancing feats on slack rope, rola bola, and more. Joining Bella is the Prescott Circus Theatre, a youth development/performing arts program based in West Oakland.

Come early to the Friday, June 27, 2014 performance and make a circus-worthy hat of your own, courtesy of ArtSpan. ArtSpan’s Kaleidoscope Program brings artist-led activities for youth and families to outdoor community events.
