    Pittsburgh’s Zany Umbrella Circus, a delightful throwback dedicated to folk artistry of all kinds -- puppetry, circus, music, storytelling, street theatre and visual arts -- teams up with Germany’s Oko Sokolo Company to present this dazzling work, inspired by the children’s book Mirette on the Highwire. At a little inn in Paris in the 1920s, a young girl finds her calling, and her youthful courage and optimism reignites a love of the art for a wire-walking superstar. The performance uses physical theater, masks, dance, and circus, with staging that gives a nod to a time when bohemian artists created theater in rehearsal halls illuminated by gaslight.
