Cirque Alfonse’s “Timber!”

Combining the talents of those who ran away to join the circus and those who ran away to join a logging camp, Quebec’s Cirque Alfonse presents Timber!, a thrilling, lumberjack-themed acrobatic show with an axe obsession. The performers and other experts offer historical context and answer questions at select shows, and audience members who grow a beard, wear a fake beard, or shrink their head so their subdermal facial hair pokes through on opening night will be entered to win special prizes.

Rustic Circus Props
This isn’t your everyday circus. Performers leap through hoops made of rusty saws, leap from rolling log to rolling log, and juggle real axes—proving their sharpness by burying them in standing stumps.

Homespun Humor
Goofiness pervades the action, such as during a hunting scene where beard-wearing banjo-players stalk a performer in a bear costume.

Folk Music . . . And Then Some
Folk music soundtracks the entire show, played on fiddles, saws, guitars, and banjos. Audiences might also hear a rustic spin on songs such as “I Will Survive.”

NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts

NYU sits at the center of the creative fondue pot that is Greenwich Village, but it spent its first 172 years without a full-scale, professional performance space. That finally changed in 2003 with the opening of the Skirball Center for the Performing Arts. Embracing the artistic spirit of its neighborhood, the center’s 860-seat proscenium theater hosts everything from student productions to innovative performance groups from around the world.
