WILMINGTON- Memorial Hall is proud to once again have an evening with Kevin O’Keefe and his one-man show, “Circus Minimus” on Saturday, July 27, at 7pm.

The One-Man-Circus-in-a-Suitcase gives everyone an opportunity to participate in a whimsical celebration of the imagination.For many years O’Keefe instructed at New York’s Big Apple Circus. With the help of his lovely wife, the audience, O’Keefe speaks in the international language of laughter.

O’Keefe has traveled the world since 1985 to both teach and study circus, theater and yoga. As the artistic director of Circus Minimus he has directed residencies and performances that have touched the lives of over 100,000 children and their families. In 2001 he was honored an Excellence in Education award from the International Jugglers Association. He received an advanced Hatha yoga certification in 1991 from the Integral Yoga Institute. In 2008, in honor of many years of teaching, Mayor Matthew Ryan, of Binghamton, NY, declared the first two weeks of August to be Circus Minimus Days. For five years Kevin was an instructor at the Big Apple Circus School in Harlem. He is the founder and past president of the American Youth Circus Organization. As a NYC-based Equity and SAG actor, Kevin performed on stage, screen, and television. With his wife Erin Maile he co-founded the practice and community of CircusYoga. The New Yorker magazine recently wrote “Circus Minimus taps into the imaginative powers of children while giving them solid circus skills.”
