‘La Besita’

January 20 | 7:30 pm

A rendering of circus show La Besita

In a cloud of smoke, the train flies through the air above the stage as aerialists and acrobats depicting the train’s passengers and moving parts defy gravity. For Charlotte circus arts ensemble Nouveau Sud the train is La Bestia — or “The Beast,” which can offer an avenue toward a new life or kill you outright. La Bestia is a contemporary circus show about the immigrant journey from Latin America to the US. The harrowing yet eerily beautiful journey treks through near-psychedelic scenes that capture the heart of the landscape and its culture.
