In the mountains of North Georgia on the campus of Rabun Gap-Nacoochee School, students are flying high above the stage training for the school’s annual Cirque program. Rabun Gap’s Cirque program began after a group of student thespians participated in a workshop on miming, clowning, and acrobatics.
Now in its 13th year, the Rabun Gap Cirque is highly acclaimed in the region and beyond for its artistic storytelling through drama and acrobatics. Many of the sequences are choreographed by veteran student performers who are identified as leaders for each apparatus and skit. The program brings artists, thespians, dancers, and athletes together in a single performance that delivers beyond expectations!
The 2014 Cirque -- Cirque Fiaba de Grimm -- is the story of two sisters who while reading Grimm Fairy Tales, find themselves trapped inside the book by the Evil Queen. They embark on a journey to confront the Queen to find their way home. Along the way, they meet characters from many of the traditional Grimm fairy tales including Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Cinderella, Rumplestiltskin, Rapunzel, and The Frog Prince.
