    The Circus Spectacular is a dazzling fundraising event hosted by the New England Center for Circus Arts. Starring guest artists from circuses necca circusaround the world, this is a unique opportunity to see some of today’s most renowned high flying aerialists, acrobats, and jugglers in Brattleboro on the Latchis Theatre stage.

    For the first time in Vermont, star of Cirque du Soleil’s Corteo, is Jeff Raz who will emcee this year’s cabaret of performers. Raz toured the world as a juggler, acrobat and character with Vaudeville Nuveau and the Pickle Family Circus before joining the French Canadian cirque show in which he starred as the lead character. Raz will be appearing for the first time in support of NECCA to help raise funds for outreach programming.

Payne and Feusi touring for 6 years with Cirque du Soleil’s Saltimbanco before starring on circuses in Europe and the United States including Knie and Teatro Zinzanni. The duo will share their Vertical Tango duet that won a Gold Medal at the prestigious Festival Mondial de Cirque du Demain in Paris.

NECCA offers free and discounted programming with many collaborators for at risk youth including Brattleboro housing developments, Boys & Girls Club, the Retreat and Kurn Hattin Homes.
