Acme Miniature Flea Circus

February 26 - 28, 2009

Intuit will present the Acme Miniature Flea Circus as a tribute to Chicago self-taught artist, Joseph Yoakum. Yoakum’s visionary landscapes were inspired by his world travels with five different circuses, and served as a record of his memories. Adam Gertsacov, a graduate of the Ringling Bros. Clown College and owner of the Acme Miniature Flea Circus, will bring his stars, Midge and Madge, to Intuit. Part sideshow, part exhibit, and a whole lot of fun! Midge and Madge will pull golden chariots, walk a high wire, and blast out of a cannon. According to the New York Press, the performance will “amaze and astound even the most cynical and nearsighted of visitors. WATCH! As Midge and Madge pull a tiny chariot! GASP! As they frolic on the tightrope!”
