Our featured performing of the month is Book Kennison!
Book Kennison has been perfecting his solo show for Circus Harmony since 2008. Combining juggling, dance, improvisation, and astonishing physical comedy, he creates a show that simultaneously draws in the audience while pushing the limits of how far they’re willing to follow him. In 25 minutes, he explores the mind, body, ego, and soul of a performer through methods silly and profound, all without speaking.
His credits include Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey, Circus Smirkus, Midnight Circus, The Late Show and The Tonight Show; and as the featured performer in Silhouette on the Celebrity Silhouette. He has spent the last seven months traveling through Europe and Canada and he’s thrilled to return to Circus Harmony, his favorite place to perform.
Our featured performer of the month is Elliana Grace with her one woman show: HEARTBREAK, HUMOR and HOOPS!
Elliana Grace has been in the circus since before she could even walk. Her first entry into a circus ring was on the back of an elephant at the age of 2 weeks! Raised in St. Louis, MO as a member of Circus Harmony’s élite youth troupe – the St. Louis Arches – with additional education at the École de Cirque de Québec; she has performed and taught in Montreal, Israel, Dubai, and all across America. She has extensive experience in such disciplines as lyra: (solo and duo), static and flying trapeze, tumbling, hula hoops, bareback horse riding, upside-down loop walking, and more. In 2013, she toured as Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey’s youngest-ever female human cannonball.
Catch her 30-minute one-woman show at the City Museum of St. Louis. Her performance style combines skill, technical precision, and wholesome entertainment values with comedy and Broadway-style musicality and showmanship.
