diverse dance and movement organizations, one of which will be chosen to show their work at The

opportunities in the Richmond community by showcasing our own talented artists.

This year, Host of Sparrows Aerial Circus has been invited to showcase their new full-length work,

The Big Top in the Little Easy: Animals, Clowns, and Acrobats! – A traditional circus in a

contemporary style! Host of Sparrows is an in house company at Dogtown Dance Theatre that

specializes in classes from introductory to professional performance training in a variety of circus

arts. Host of Sparrows is Richmond’s first professional aerial circus troupe and The Big Top in the

Little Easy is their first full-length production.

The Big Top in the Little Easy features an array of circus entertainment including aerial arts,

partner acrobatics, contortion, stilt walking and more. This production is a circus arts show about

Sammy, a janitor in black and gray who learns to see a world full of excitement and color through

the circus. Host of Sparrows is working in collaboration with music composer Brett Zwerdling and

the nonprofit organization Puppets Off Broad for this performance. Dogtown wants the Richmond

community to experience the magic of the circus through Host of Sparrows. Tickets will be $10 for
