FringeArts presents the annual two-week festival of contemporary circus arts. Featuring performances in the theater, La Peg, and outdoors, Hand to Hand brings remarkable levels of artistry and ability together for a thrilling lineup of events—a circus festival perfect for the whole family. Performances and workshops include acrobatics, aerials, clowning, juggling, and everything in between.
