Representing the fifth generation of Russian circus arts in his family, Denis Ignatov unites dexterity, drama and some good old-fashioned circus-style danger into his two signature performances—IN.FERNO and CUBIQUE—one featuring fire spinning and flaming whips and the other a masterclass in illusion and shape manipulation. On June 12, Ignatov and the 2018 Summer Circus Spectacular mark the return of the Circus Arts Conservatory to this annual collaboration with The Ringling Museum, bringing international talent to the Sarasota scene. Running through July 28, with two shows a day except Sundays and Mondays, experience the timeless magic of the circus arts upon the storied stage of the Historic Asolo Theatre this summer. An hour-long performance, an additional $5 grants entrance to the Circus Museum.
