Follow the aerial adventures and physical theater journeys of eight unlikely people who lose something precious and the bumps along the way to finding it. 

BEYOND THE RING is a world-premier circus show and appropriate for all ages.

“I’m not even sure what a circus is anymore.  .  .  .

What I am sure of is that whatever the circus

is in 2017, Kinetic Arts has found a way

to its slippery soul.”
