“Freak-Show Cabaret” at Sylvan Lake brewery supporting Volunteer Central

When was the last time you saw a contortionist perform in the middle of a brewery?

Volunteer Central and Undercurrent Brewing are pleased to introduce the performers that will be wowing the audience on October 25, 2019. The event takes place at Undercurrent Brewing from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m.

Boo’s + Brews: A Freak-Show Cabaret is a fundraiser hosted by Undercurrent Brewing. Proceeds will go towards Volunteer Central, a non-profit that enhances community through volunteerism.

Volunteer Central advocates and inspires volunteerism on behalf of the hundreds of non-profit organizations that rely on them to help recruit volunteers to carry out their services in the community. The event is partnership with the aim to enhance and strengthen community-building through advocacy of volunteerism.

Enjoy a freakishly-fun adult-only evening that includes two live circus performances, a tarot card-reading gypsy, 50/50 and raffles. Round up the staff and purchase 4 tickets for $120. Package includes 8 drink tickets, a specially-crafted signature cocktail, a delicious assortment of tapas including mini chicken & waffles, tortellini skewers, finishing with a corazon chocolate and hazelnut mousse dessert.

Single tickets are $35, and include 2 drink tickets, tapas and dessert.

The event features circus acts from world-class performers based in Calgary, like sword swallowing, a contortionist, and – we shudder as we type this – there may even be nails going up noses, and more.

About the performers:

Lindsay Istace is an award-winning circus performer. Skilled in the arts of crystal ball juggling, extreme flexibility, and more, she has traveled the world to hone her craft. With grace, precision, excessive-high kicks and a dash of danger, Lindsay will delight you a world-class show that you won’t forget.

Schuyler Snowdon is a Canadian circus artist specializing in juggling and balance skills. When pushed to define his show he likes to call it an unusually highly skilled clown act. He performs with acrobatic ladder, rola bola, unicycle and juggles plates, knives and glasses. He began working as a circus performer doing street shows in 2008 and has since performed all over Western Canada by himself and with a number of groups.
