We invite you to our upcoming arts + tech festival. Over the course of the Media Circus we will showcase live music, dance and spoken word performances shared over distance, interactive new media art pieces which are fun for the entire family and share dialogue around the future of the traditional arts in a digital world. Media Circus is the merging of new mixed media arts with the traditional performing arts in a lively, open and creative setting. We hope to see you there!
