HEPHAESTUS

January 9 – March 9, 2008

Water Tower Water Works

Created and Directed by Artistic Associate Tony Hernandez and Ensemble Member Heidi Stillman
Co-produced with Silverguy Entertainment

The world’s elite circus performers, including veteran members of the Wallenda Family, Ringling Bros. and Cirque du Soleil, return to Chicago’s Water Tower Water Works for Hephaestus: A Greek Mythology Circus Tale. A world premiere hit for Lookingglass in 2005, Hephaestus is a must-see circus theatre event. Evocative storytelling, amazing athleticism and the very highest levels of circus artistry bring the ancient Greek myth story of Hephaestus to the high wire in this death-defying circus retelling.

A top-drawer, post-modern, intimate circus show
