If you missed Cirque du Soleil, then you’re in luck.
This weekend, Cirque Hamptons presents “The Electric Cirquit” – a 90-minute cirque show featuring aerial performers, contortionists and jugglers who toss and catch balls that emit light. The show, which hits Wainscott on Saturday, is all set to house and techno music.
Sparkling lasers, surreal black light and computerized LED–lit costumes are also used to dazzle the eyes. One act, called Spinning Cube, orbits the stage while performing somersaults inside an enclosed, transparent sphere with lights. The finale features all of the cirque acts performing with music during a light display.
Evening performances include multiple bars and passed hors d’oeuvres, so they’re geared toward the 21 and over crowd. But, Sunday’s matinee will cater to younger audiences.
So, why go?
“For families, this is something fun and entertaining they can do with their kids for the holiday,” says Berk Communications publicist Lauren Menache. “For young adults, this is an opportunity to go out earlier in the evening before venturing to the bars and clubs.”
WHEN/WHERE 7 p.m. (doors) and 9 p.m. (performance) July 2 and July 3; 2:30 p.m. (doors) and 3:00 p.m. (performance) July 3 at East Hamptons Studio, 77 Industrial Road, Wainscott.
COST $25 (general admission standing) to $195 (VIP seats including open bar for evening performances and parking)
