HESPERIA — Acrobatics, juggling, comedy and all around fun is in store, until August 8th, with Cirque Legacy. The traveling circus aims to bring family entertainment to the High Desert after a year of the COVID lockdown.
“I came here because here it is a little fresher than other areas,” said Cirque Legacy Owner Daniel Perez about coming to the High Desert. “This is a good opportunity for people to come out and enjoy a family show and be together.”
Perez, who is originally from Cuba, says he is a fifth generation circus performer and has operated Cirque Legacy for seven years. He says he wants to keep his family in the circus business and both his sons are performers.
“It’s called Cirque Legacy because it’s a circus legacy,” said Perez. “I want to keep doing it for generations to come.”
Cirque Legacy is an animal free circus that focuses on performance artistry. Perez says people’s mentality has to change about a circus with no animals. His show includes live music, high flying stunts, and audience participation.
“Cirque du Soleil is the most famous circus in the world and they don’t have animals,” said Perez. “This is a real specific example of real circus art with costumes, lights, music and the talent to make you stand up in your seat, clap, smile, cry. All those feelings.”
Cirque Legacy is located at 18435 Bear Valley Rd, Hesperia. Shows start at 8 p.m. Monday through Friday. There are two shows Saturday and Sunday at 5:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the door or on Eventbrite.
