Event Details

The Science Circus is a completely entertaining comedy show that teaches the Physics of juggling and acrobalance tricks. Because it works on so many levels, people often compare it to a Pixar movie.

Growing up in rural Oregon, Rhys learned to juggle in high school to impress a girl and then lost the girl and juggled to forget. He went to the University of Oregon and claims to have an M.F.A. (Master of Frivolous Arts). Paying off his college loans as a rain-soaked street performer, Rhys created Science Circus to get an indoor gig at Seattle’s Pacific Science Center. This led to museums in 7 countries and hundreds of school shows. Rhys also created his “tour de farce” of circus tricks called JuggleMania to get on to cruise ships and in to theaters and international festivals in 30 countries.
