Circusing Iowa City on a Friday Night...
With Jazz music still hovering in the air, Tiny Circus set up camp in downtown Iowa City at the Ped. Mall. Despite a rainy morning, the evening found us warm and dry with a brilliant audience and a clear sky. All ages came to sit outside in the July evening and share the Tiny Circus experience with friends and strangers alike.
Daylight was still shinning when our crew first rolled in. Equipped with a new animation, just finished earlier in the day at U.A.Y., Tiny Circus was prepared for the evening performance. Was Iowa City ready for the circus?
Our portable Animation Station invited passerbys to try out stop motion animation on their own.
Before the sun sets Susan and Elizabeth pass out our handy and very attractive Tiny Circus bookmarks. Remember to check up on our plans by visiting the website and by referencing your orange, green, or blue bookmark.
The time is 8:00 p.m. and the projection screen needs to come up. It's near the end of our summer time tour, and as these last events fade away, we can all enjoy our new screen set up / take down abilities. Anyone have a timer?
And our show begins!
Along with with The History of Soap, The History of Pockets also had it's Tiny Circus premier. Such a sneaky pencil with such clever ideas...
Despite an unexpected conga line, it was a night of magic and imagination underneath the stars. We hope you enjoyed the show, and we look forward to returning to Iowa City in the future.
