Water circus Cirque Italia comes to Sioux City

SIOUX CITY (KTIV) – The circus is in town!

But this isn’t the type of circus you’re thinking of.

Cirque Italia is the country’s first, and only water circus.

Cirque Italia performs every weekend during the year across the country.

And this weekend they are performing here in Sioux City at the Southern Hills Mall.

Each performance includes everything from dinosaurs to juggling, aerial acts, and plenty of water.

“35,000 gallons tank of water in the center of our stage and it’s dynamic so part of the stage lifts up and we rainwater from the ceiling and shoot it in the air and projecting lights, and lasers which makes it look really incredible,” says Samantha Kulinski, Italia Cirque Performer.

Tonight’s show in the Sears parking lot at the Southern Hills Mall starts at 7:30 p.m. and goes for two hours.

Tickets are between $20-40 and can be purchased on site.

On Saturday, three performances will be held at 1:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

On Sunday, there are a pair of performances at 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.
