Nouveau Sud, Charlotte’s premiere circus troupe, presents La Bestia, a brand new work of innovation, acrobatics and spoken word. Be among the first to experience this all new production before its official premiere and national tour and help to shape it through a post-show discussion with the creative team.
A show for all ages and a thought provoking experience for the whole family, La Bestia is an homage to an important and often unheard sector of our community, our LatinX community, while also aiming to open conversation about the reality of immigration in the United States and around the world. Driven by the growing presence of Central Americans in the Charlotte metro region and triggered by the recent discoveries on the Calvary that is crossing Mexico for most immigrants, the Nouveau Sud Circus Project embarks on a theatrical investigation to bring attention to the treacherous journey that some of our community members endure.
The phenomenon of immigration is an international and intercultural one, and this new production aims to continue to bridge the gap between communities as we look to discover new frontiers beyond the four walls of the theater.
