The storyline:

An eccentric group of adventure seekers stumble upon a traveling circus in an imaginary Victorian city, far, far-away. SteamCirque’s peculiar protagonist, part magician-part inventor, attempts to industrialize the circus by incorporating his steam powered mechanical contraptions into the ordinary, typical circus rigging, filling the big top with new, imaginative acrobatic apparatus for the artists to perform their acts.

Circus Vargas Returns to Burbank in May

The multi-generation, family operated Circus Vargas returns to the Inland Empire with the premiere of iLUMINOUS, a new, high-energy, animal-free extravaganza under the Big Top. Boasting death-defying stuntmen, flying aerialists, exhilarating acrobats, and uproarious clowns under a music filled, blue and yellow Big Top, Circus Vargas presents iLUMINOUS will appear from May 12 through June 9 in Burbank, Ventura and Santa Ana.

iLUMINOUS follows a family who have become more connected with their electronic devices than each other. A circus spirit helps them discover that our devices merely add light to the lives we lead and are not a substitute for human connection. Special effects lighting and unique costume design will make the artists appear to glow in the dark.

Arrive 45 minutes early for an exciting, interactive pre-show experience where children (of all ages) can join the circus! After the show, meet and take pictures with our performers.

Circus Vargas presents iLUMINOUS will feature:

  • Yeromenko, a high-octane, Ukrainian, gymnastic team who makes dazzling leaps and spins from three horizontal bars 20-feet from the ground
  • The Skating Torreblancas, a Chilean duo of roller skating artists where the brother propels in a circle while whipping his sister through the air in a series of life-threatening lifts, poses and swings including one heart-in-your-throat moment when they are chained neck to neck while spinning on a 6-foot platform.
  • Known as the “Justin Bieber of the circus world,” 21-year old Patrick Marinelli gained a rabid fan base after showing off his magic on “America’s Got Talent.” The fifth generation circus artist dons a light up suit to join the guys on the electrifying Trampoline Wall before partnering with the elegant Nicolette Fornasari on a breathtaking aerial strap act.
  • The girl power Osmani Acro-Trio combines dance and contortions in an amazing display of strength and grace.
  • The comic antics of two brothers from Italy get laughs as the spiky haired Steve Caveagna spins multiple diabolos to incredible heights while the saxophone playing Jones instigates pandemonium.
  • Vova whirls light up objects such as a 4-foot cube through the dark in a Tron-like, light up costume.
  • A pair of motorcyclists zoom around in a 16-foot Globe of Danger while avoiding a daredevil beauty who stands in the center.
  • Direct from a royal command performance for Prince Albert of Monaco, the trapeze artists known as the Flying Tabares fly with the speed and beauty of fireworks through a darkened tent.
  • Jon and Laura Weiss preside over the interactive pre-show where Jon, a former contestant on The Amazing Race, balances anything from a dollar bill to a 16-foot tall ladder on his chin.

Tickets are $15-$35 for general admission seating and $35-$70 for reserved ringside seats. Purchase tickets online at www.circusvargas.com, call 877-GOTFUN-1 (877-468-3861) or visit the box office at each location.

Thursday, a famed Circus Vargas Daredevil walked across a cable stretched out over the circus’ Big Top tent to not only bring attention to the shows which are currently running now through October 13, but to also bring attention to Promote “Rebuild San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission” Donation Drive.

The San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission suffered severe damage due to a fire earlier this year and efforts are being made to restore the much needed facility.

The Daredevil walked precariously across the wire strung high across the very top of the Circus Vargas Big Top with a banner from the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission blazoned  across it to safety on the other side.
