“Captured” is a virtual contemporary circus show that will be streaming online for free!
Circus Foundry’s style of ensemble circus has been recreated and adapted to the different medium of film in a new style of creating together while staying apart. During this Pandemic, creating our traditional stage shows is not an option because of the risk to our performers and audience. To continue to create original productions, we have decided to take a new approach!
Utilizing creative filming and editing techniques, the cast focuses on presenting interesting new ensemble circus ideas that would not be possible on a traditional stage.
Big disciplines, interesting stories, and large outdoor sets to bring you a new and exciting show directly to your home!
I thought your audience would be interested in hearing about this free and fun event!
Links will be provided the day of the event at our website circusfoundry.com and on Facebook and Instagram @circusfoundry! However, donations for the artists will be welcome from anyone who feels like they have the means during this time.
Donations can be sent to PayPal: firstname.lastname@example.org
This year, we are taking our June programs virtual. You usually have to be in Denver to attend – not this time! Our planned theme Play with Music – Let’s Get Moving is perfect for a virtual experience. Move and groove along with the music. This virtual, 30-minute program will feature performances from all of the musicians of the orchestra while a teaching artist leads children through fun movement and imagination-based activities to help engage them with the music. Kids will be encouraged to respond to every piece while learning about music and instruments. You’ll grow as music gets louder, march with a fun jazz trio, and bounce along like you’re riding on a horse – just to name a few.
While we are not able to gather in person on June 13th in City Park, there are lots of ways you can still be part of this important community tradition!
Our Virtual Dash option lets you sign up for the race and receive a package filled with goodies to hold your OWN race at home, in your neighborhood, or with family and friends (when that is allowed).

Even in this period of uncertainty, brighter days are coming our way, and we want you to get outside and celebrate a sun that always rises. That’s why we’re celebrating the summer solstice with Questival Seize the Día, a remote, single-day event focused on a responsible, closer-to-home adventure under the sun. We provide a list of creative outdoor challenges, and you and your team compete with other teams across the country to see them through. The most successful teams will score cool prizes. Even better? A portion of each ticket sold will go to the IRC’s Crisis Response Fund to combat COVID-19.
How it works: Assemble your team of 1–6 participants. Compete for solo or with your friends and family.
You’ll have about 18 hours and 30 minutes to complete the list of challenges. The event starts at 3:00 a.m. MST and ends at 9:30 p.m. MST. These times are based on sunrise and sunset times across the country.
Questival Seize the Día challenges are unique in their emphasis on outdoor recreation. We’ll challenge you to spend a full day in the sun, whether you’re biking, frolicking in the flowers, cooking up something delicious in your backyard, or doing the hokey pokey.
