Cirque Alfonse

NYU Skirball will welcome in the New Year with BARBU ELECTRO TRAD, a New York premiere from Québec’s Cirque Alfonse on January 3 and  4 at 7:30 pm at NYU Skirball in Greenwich Village.

BARBU Electro Trad Cabaret is a bellyful of cheeky humor and brazen eccentricity. It's a circus for adult audiences - exceptionally strong men and women delivering edge-of-your-seat adult entertainment set to a rollicking soundtrack from a frenetic live band. Direct from Canada, Cirque Alfonse is famed for shows that explore the edges of contemporary circus. Barbu creates a strange and wonderful world, straddling old traditions with a modern edge  - a wildly exuberant night out at the circus.

Cirque Alfonse’s blend of arts and circus techniques is rooted in the traditions of its Québec home. The company was founded in 2014 by the Carabinier Lepine family and acrobats who have performed with some of the world's renowned “nouveau cirque” companies, including Les 7 doigts de la main, Cirque du Soleil, Cirkus Cirkör and many others. The company has toured across the USA as well as to Europe, Australia and Asia. cirquealfonse.com
