For almost a century and a half, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey has been entertaining children of all ages with daring stunts, acrobatic feats, comedic clowns and awe-inspiring animal performances. This year is no exception. Be prepared to be dazzled as Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents Out of This World, December 1-4 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
Out of This World will take the crowd on a futuristic quest of good versus evil as they travel through planets of ice, fire, sand and water. Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson weaves a thrilling story that will leave the audience wanting more. This multitalented performer and vocalist is back for his eighth edition of The Greatest Show on Earth. Keep an eye out for his son who will also be performing this year.
You won’t want to miss the Simet Family Astronauts performing the only one of its kind aerial “space walk” and the Heilongjiang Provincial Acrobatic Troupe showing, for the first time in America, their mastery of skilled Chinese acrobatics (such as an 11-person human pyramid) while on ice!
Watch as flyer and catcher soar through the air on the Double-Wide Flying Trapeze exhibiting stamina, strength and incredible trust. Estefani Evans, a fifth generation trapeze artist says, “The circus is my life. I didn’t realize it was a job until I was a teenager.” She started with a single somersault and is now able to perform a triple. “I am not nervous or afraid of heights. I have respect for what I do.” Her husband, a third generation performer, is working on one of the highest somersaults in the world, a quadruple. “We have two young children. One is already saying he wants to be like his daddy. It is beautiful,” says Evans.
