Many people dream of visiting Europe one day, and immersing themselves into its culture. Tomorrow, you will have the chance to experience a traditional event enjoyed in every village, town, and city across the “Old World:” A GENUINE, EUROPEAN TRAVELING CIRCUS WITH A UNIQUE FEATURE NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE IN AMERICA. Cirque Italia has gathered circus performers from around the world for this year’s production. The Cirque Italia owner decided to start a NEW CONCEPT in America with a TRAVELING 35,000 GALLON WATER STAGE!!!
This 40 foot Broadway circular style stage is 4 feet high and contains 35,000 gallons of water inside. During the show, audience members will be surprised when the lid lifts up to 35 feet in the air while a CURTAIN OF RAIN AND FOUNTAINS DANCE WITH EACH PERFORMANCE MOVE!
Some of the performances include: COCO THE CLOWN from Argentina who rides the WORLD’S SMALLEST BICYCLE; contortion on top of a 8 foot coat rack; a HULA HOOPING Balancing Act AROUND A RING OF WATER; Juggling Fusco Twins, Guinness Book World Record Juggling five clubs for the unsurpassed time of 57 minutes; A MERMAID that will dazzle little girls’ hearts while swinging above their heads; a Verticali Act ALL THE WAY FROM ITALY singing UPSIDE DOWN and more generations of circus families sharing with other families their talents from around the world. You won't believe your eyes when you see the 360 LASERMAN ACT! A truly magical illusion! Blades of laser light are hand-manipulated right in front of your eyes! Watch the laws of physics crumble when the performer actually "holds" a beam of light in his hand, splits it into two, then bends it and spins it around like a light saber! He even throws the beams over your head, up into the tent and creates blasts of excitement!
Come spend TWO hours with this exciting SPECTACULAR WATER AND ARTIST CIRCUS COLLABORATION! CIRQUE ITALIA is presented under a magnificent White & Blue Big Top Tent that is 110 feet in circumference and soars 70 feet into the air, where every seat is so close you'll think you are in the Circus. It's truly "Memories for a lifetime for Children of All Ages".

Ultra-Deep Field Art Exhibit
Opening Reception, Friday, October 24, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm; Gallery open October 20-November 14
Rockford University Art Gallery, Clark Arts Center, 5050 E. State St., Rockford, IL 61108
Artists: Daniel Baird, Sarah and Joseph Belknap, Katie Bell, Bill Conger, Laura Davis, Adam Farcus, Bob Jones, Holly Murkerson, Erin Washington
Curated by Jason Judd, Ultra-Deep Field is a group exhibition that considers the inadequacy of representing desire, time, and scale by way of hand. Though the artwork spans sculpture, photography, drawing, and video, the pieces posture themselves as self-evident, allowing the literal to be experienced as poetic. In the exhibition, Joseph Belknap lights Sarah Belknap’s cigarette using the sun, Bill Conger stencils an exact replica of a poem written by his 8 year old son, while Erin Washington’s 9 x 12 black acrylic panel documents the process of her hand healing by using her injured hand to draw itself. To this end, Ultra-Deep Field suggests possibilities of how to reorient one’s body with the everyday world that acts upon it.
The Rockford University Art Gallery is located in the Clark Arts Center on Rockford University’s campus at 5050 East State Street, Rockford. Gallery Hours are Monday – Thursday, 3 – 6 p.m. and by appointment.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. Clark Arts Center is wheelchair accessible. For more information, contact the Rockford University Box Office at 815-226-4100 or Molly Carter, Gallery Director at 815-226-4105, M.Carter@Rockford.edu
