On Saturday February 7, F.A.Q. Circus is performing three free twenty-minute shows at The Atrium in Troy, as a preview to their 55 minute shows inside of the Gasholder building. The shows in the Gasholder building will take place on Friday February 20 and Saturday February 21.
Founded in 2012, F.A.Q. Circus is a collective of contemporary circus performers who push the boundaries of what Americans typically think of as a circus. The company does not use animals or feature large bright colored costumes. Instead, their focus is on the incredible capabilities of the human body demonstrated through contortion, gymnastics and juggling. The venues, too, are smaller and more intimate than the typical American arena productions where large-scale circus normally occurs.
