Circus Vargas has accomplished a feat even more difficult than some might have believed possible. They have created an incredible animal-free circus production that still manages to deliver audiences the nostalgic, authentic, traditional circus feel that fans love, albeit without the animal factor. This show is amazingly entertaining for everyone of any age! It’s the perfect mix of aerial artistry, dare-devilry, comedy, magic and acrobatics. So why no animals?
“We receive many inquiries as to why Circus Vargas’ current productions do not include animal acts,” says Rolanda Kaiser, PR Director. “The creative concept behind the reincarnation of Circus Vargas has simply been a natural progression in the long and stellar careers of owners Nelson and Katya Quiroga.
Circus Vargas’ new owners are former acrobats and are doing what they know best. Although some might not imagine a circus without animals, the circus is really so much more! It’s a feeling, an experience. It’s that giddy excitement that overcomes you the moment you’ve entered the big top in excited anticipation, wondering what spectacular things are awaiting to be seen!
“Having performed as acrobats and aerialists with some of the most famous circuses in the world,” said Kaiser, “Nelson has always gravitated toward the acrobatic aspect of circus. Katya, a former ballerina, leans toward the artistic, balletic aspect, the beauty of movement and the human form.”
With the exciting flying trapeze aerialists, jugglers, clowns, acrobats, the lights, and the music — you know you have entered a magical circus realm where you expect and prepare to be amazed and astonished! “Circus Vargas is absolutely circus at its best,” says Rolanda.
